Established urban congregation of approximately 900 members seeks a worship leader for its contemporary worship ministry. Strong vocal ability mixed with guitar or keyboard talent is preferred, but we are open to other_noemailbinations as well. Experience in leading worship is preferred but not necessary.
Our contemporary worship ministry is well-developed and supported, with 15+ years of experience and a dedicated core group of approximately 12 singers and musicians. Our sanctuary is large (holds 800) and is well-equipped for contemporary music with pro backline and monitor gear and concert style video/sound. There is also a Tech Arts ministry team to support the music ministry. The contemporary worship service attendance varies from 100 - 250 and averages 150; the worship team offers 6-7 mainstream contemporary (K-Love / Air One) songs each week.
This position is a part time role requiring 10-15 hours per week spent collaborating with the pastor, planning worship, rehearsing, and leading worship. Our congregation also has a rich tradition of liturgical worship and the worship leader will occasionally be asked to serve our larger music ministry in concert with our choir director and_noemailanist.
The primary objective of this position is to provide spiritual leadership for the contemporary worship_noemailmunity through the gift of music and prayer, sharing the word of God and the good news of Jesus Christ through the use of song, multimedia, visual and non-visual performances, to help the congregation and_noemailmunity understand and experience the love of Christ and develop a strong foundation in faith.
