We want you to lead worship, but we also want you to help empower and train others to work in music/worship ministries within our church under your leadership and guidance.
Work well with people, and have a joyful and winsome personality. You will be working with a number of really great and gifted people who work well to ether already, and we want that to continue.
Be patient with people, not temperamental. Worship and musical ministry is the goal, not personal or church glory or perfection. One of our values is that people are to be loved, not used.
Have an ability/eagerness to work in a cross-cultural setting. The majority of our Children in our children's ministry and our youth ministry are Hispanic. Most are second generation so they speak English well, however the ability to speak Spanish would be a real plus!
