Assistant Pastor of Worship (Worship Pastor) Position Description


As the title implies, the Assistant Pastor position is created to provide general assistance to the Senior Pastor in the wide variety of tasks and responsibilities needed to grow and shepherd the church.

The Assistant Pastor will report directly to the Senior Pastor and will be subject to all of the approved policies and procedures in the Staff Handbook, including quarterly performance evaluations. Even though this position bears some responsibility in virtually all areas of the overall church ministry and program, the following tasks and responsibilities give shape to the position's current priorities.
