Job Description:

Hello! Cornerstone is a non-denominational Christian / Protestant church in Waynesville, NC. (CornerstoneChurchWaynesville.com)

Cornerstone is looking for our next Worship Leader / Pastor

We are looking for a guy to lead us in worship on Sundays and take us farther into our "Generational Church" vision (i.e. that we are actively reaching 18-35 year old, and passing on a robust, dynamic faith in Christ to the next two generations). We currently have a 9-member praise team with sound and AV techs supporting. Our worship style is blended, but mostly contemporary and celebratory. This is initially a part time position (10 hours per week at $15-20 per hour).

A solid confession of Christ and Christian testimony with verifiable "fruit of the Spirit" from at least 3 personal references. (A FBI background check will be performed as well.)
A passion for and calling to worship and ministry
A gifting for leading the congregation while playing guitar and/or keys
A strong singing talent (an above average singer)
A passion for serving others
A dedicated prayer life
An ability to lead others humbly and boldly (particularly in a praise band)
Must be able to submit to pastoral-elder oversight while contributing as a pastor-minister of the church.
Must live locally or moving to the area (Western NC). Within a 30-40 minute drive of 224 Barber Hill Dr. Waynesville, NC.
Must be male, preferably in the 20 or 30-something demographic.
Education / a degree is beneficial, but not required.
Experience: of course, the more the better in most cases, but if you are fresh to ministry and have a lot of energy, vision, and expectation of the Lord, we are open to that.
Willingness to meet at least twice per month with the pastor and staff
Willingness to use volunteer musicians/singers and seek out more talent
