Job Description:
Ben Davis Christian Church is looking for a committed Christian individual to lead our choir special music in both of our services as well as cantatas during the Christmas and Easter seasons. The ideal person would be in their 30’s or 40’s, but we are more concerned about personality and skill set than age. We need someone who is young at heart and has a desire to help people serve in the choir to worship rather than perform.
Ben Davis Christian Church is a growing blended multi-generational church. Our worship style seeks to have a creative mixture of old and new. Weekly the choir is about 20 individuals ranging in age from 31-74. For our Easter Cantata this year we had 40 singers and 15 musicians. We are looking for the right person who can help us make the choir more attractive to people in the 20-40 range while keeping the group that has been a part of the choir for years intact. We have the desire to see the choir to continue to be vibrant part of our worship services.
At Easter our choir performed “The Weeping Tree” by Joseph M. Martin. Some of our other recent pieces are Mark Hayes’ “I’ll Fly Away Medley” and “Welcome to our World” arranged by Jack Schrader.
A. Rehearse the choir weekly on Tuesday nights from 7:00-8:15 pm for Sunday services.
B. Lead the choir in our 8:30 and 10:45 services. Be at the church by 7:45 am on Sunday mornings to warm up the choir at 8:00 am.
C. Work with the Worship and Creative Arts Pastor to select weekly music and cantatas.
D. Lead the choir in additional rehearsals during the Christmas and Easter seasons to prepare for special worship services.
E. Participate in the life of the Church
Salary is Negotiable
