Job Description:

Our community has exploded with growth over the last decade, and our church has sought to continue to pioneer ministry for our area. While we have historic roots in the community, our church is not what people expect initially because of our history. It's been a very exciting time, but also very challenging to our creativity. We currently host 2 different styles of worship in two different venues. We’re looking for a skilled worship pastor who can lead in two of those services while overseeing the entire arts ministry of the church. Music evolves over time, and we have taken steps for the last 18 months to refresh our style to continue to connect to the young families who are moving into our area. Our church has created marketable video, produced worship recordings, hosted multiple venues, and we want to continue to engage people in fresh ways. For a sample of current worship experiences, see services from the last several months at and note that our position became vacant just before Easter this year.

This position is for a modern, contemporary worship setting. We are continuing to evolve into a younger sound and style for these two worship venues, expecting someone who will assist us in continuing to develop that fresh worship style.

The worship pastor must be a visionary who is creative in leading people to God. The worship pastor is a leader who can communicate a direction in a way that inspires those around him/her to join in the pursuit of that vision. This position is a pastoral one that therefore requires the individual to serve not solely as a musical or performing arts director but also as a shepherd to the people who serve in this ministry. The Worship Pastor is responsible for worship leading, worship band recruitment and development, and overseeing all the technical and worship arts. He/She will work under the direct supervision of the Lead Pastor. He/She will team with Lead Pastor to plan corporate worship by choosing music, media, and other creative elements that will help FBC spiritually engage with God and honor Him through experiential worship. Responsibilities include corporate worship planning and leadership, recruitment and equipping of worship leadership, and oversight of all elements necessary to enhance the worship experience.
