The Worship Pastor is responsible to the church, under the direction of the Executive Pastor for fulfilling the mission and vision of the church through the planning and leading of worship services. This is done in collaboration with and subject to the leadership of the Senior Pastor. Other key duties include the development and supervision of a comprehensive music program, and special events and services requiring music. These duties include the direct supervision of the music staff and volunteers involved in this ministry.

The Worship Pastor provides leadership and oversight to all aspects of worship and music at Harrisburg Baptist Church. This is a pastoral position that requires him to serve as a worship leader, a shepherd to those who serve in this ministry (choirs, musicians, tech, production, etc) and as a member of the overall ministry team.


We are looking for a relational, engaging, and action-oriented Worship Pastor to join our Church team. The right person must be a professional who is gifted in music, great at building relationships, and leading our worship team and congregation into the presence of God.


  • The foremost requirement for this role is that of a Christ centered life. The successful candidate will have a deep and ever-growing relationship with God as evidenced by daily habits of spending time with Him and His Word, observable fruits of the spirit, active involvement in the leadership of a church, and a commitment to maintaining healthy accountability relationships with a small number of mature believers. A strong sense of calling will be evident.
  • Qualified candidates will consistently model and demonstrate the spiritual qualifications for church leaders found in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1.
  • Contenders for this role will have substantial experience, in one or more congregations, successfully leading and overseeing worship ministries. Viable candidates will have experience working in growing organizations that strive for a high standard of excellence in every way.
  • Our staff functions in a collaborative, strengths based and team-oriented culture. The Worship Pastor must be characterized by these same values. Skilled Team play is a must. Additionally, our staff functions in a learning culture so the candidate must demonstrate a track record of commitment to personal growth and development.
  • Though not required to preach, the Worship Pastor must be able to effectively share God’s Word and represent the overall vision of Harrisburg Baptist Church. Therefore, this person will likely be known as an able equipper and communicator via the written and spoken word.
  • A well-established theological construct and an in-depth knowledge of scripture is necessary for the demands of this position. Leading candidates will affirm the SBC Baptist Faith & Message 2000 and possess a biblical theology and philosophy of ministry that is consistent with that of Harrisburg Baptist Church.
  • Further, this is the role of a pastor. A shepherd’s approach is a must; thus this person will possess personal warmth that brings comfort, peace, wise counsel and harmony to relationships and the work environment.

BACKGROUND CHECKS: You Owe It To Your Church

A ministry that serves children and youth has the obligation to exercise “due diligence” with regards to protecting its members, especially the children. By performing background checks on your perspective ministers your church is…

  • Putting up a safeguard at the “doorway” of the organization that will, in most cases, scare off sexual predators.
  • Offering peace of mind to discerning parents when choosing a church, by knowing your ministry is being pro-active in trying to protect the children.

Protect My Ministry

Thousands of ministries trust Protect My Ministry, a ministry background check company. One of the only background check companies that will do a free “re-verification” of records from the national criminal database for a volunteer, and to also do a “true” 50 state search on sexual offenders.

Protect My Ministry is a Christian-owned and operated business, being 51% business and 49% ministry. This business was started as the co-owners noticed that churches were not fully aware of the best sources for background checks or truly what they were getting.
