Director of Music Ministry

The River Anglican Church

Blacksburg, VA

Category: Christian Music / Christian Musician

Posted on: April 23, 2020

Job Description:

We are looking for someone to serve as pianist and administrator -- averaging 15
hours per week -- who will oversee our entire worship ministry (services, musicians, logistics, etc), and lead us beyond where we are. Certain times of the year would be less hours (10/wk) and others would be more (20/wk). This position has great flexibility (Sundays away, missing a morning or
evening service, etc) -- we have others who can lead on guitar.
This individual will oversee the music ministry, including its administration and background work:
attending regular meetings with church staff, recruiting and scheduling musicians, running rehearsals,
overseeing special services, etc. We have two other part-time administrators who would be available to help; we work collaboratively as a staff.
We are seeking an a_noemailplished pianist who can read music and also play by ear with the goal of
expanding our diversity of musical genres (classical, hymns, blues/gospel, latino, etc) as well as integrating multicultural/global dimensions in our service -- utilizing many of the gifted musicians in our
congregation. There are possibilities for a seasonal adult/children's choir in our future as well.


Vision: work with staff to expand the congregation's understanding and scope for congregational,
musical worship -- young and old.
- Team development and delegation: we are not looking for a "one person show" but one who raises up other leaders and enjoys working with and building teams.
- Administration: work with over 15 musicians and potentially, many more. Managing Planning Center Software, schedules -- creating processes and structures are a must.
-Musicianship: accomplished piano skills, music reading, and playing by ear. Thorough understanding of music theory and the ability to teach others using "layman's terms."
-Leadership: strong ability to lead people in congregational singing, exemplified by confidence in leader's own singing, consistent awareness, sensitivity to the congregation and flow of the service, and clear communication.
