About the Position:

Our church’s corporate worship experience is the foundational bedrock upon which we “make disciples here and everywhere for the glory of God!”

  • The minister is to be a servant leader. (Mark 10:42-45)

  • The main task of the minster is to equip the saints for the work of ministry. (Ephesians, 4:11-12)

worship ministry. This will, at times, include the worship choir and orchestra, children and student music, and other vocal and instrumental ensembles to meet the worship, educational, and missional needs of the church.


5.    Give primary attention to the recruitment, development, and oversight of the worship bands preparing them and leading with them in all rehearsals, services and events as requested.


6.    In conjunction with the Media Ministry, oversee the development and implementation of all necessary platform software used in the worship services (e.g. Planning Center, Ableton, MultiTracks, etc.).


7.    Commit to professional growth as a musician and minister through attending conferences and workshops or continuing education.
