This position will require 10-15 hours/week with most weeks leaning more toward 10.
Our church can probably be categorized as "contemporary." We love singing stuff from places like Bethel and Hillsong and Elevation...but also loves hymns and folk music and so much more. We are not "married" to a particular musical style.
The main part of this job involves:
(1) Planning out worship services with our pastor. (You'll be working with a pastor who typically maps out teaching series a year at a time a year in advance.)
(2) Being a "shepherd" for our musicians. This group include vocalists, guitarists, a keyboardist, a percussionist, and base players. Relationships matters, and these relationships will require some investment. This means that, on any given Sunday, everything musically doesn't rest on your shoulders alone.
(3) Providing direction and support to our sound/tech volunteers.
Our (founding) pastor just finished a three-month Sabbatical, and as we regather and lean into 2022, we are wanting to try NEW things in worship (that make Sunday more participatory) as we reach back into our larger Christian heritage. We probably fit the moniker "contemporary church," and our congregation skews younger (in terms of our demographic makeup). We strive for health over numerical growth and we define success as the ability to say of someone, "We're proud of you!"
