Job Type: Full-Time

Job Description:
Covenant Lutheran (ELCA) is a great congregation located on the western edge of Houston. We are seeking a multi-talented person who can energize and grow our music ministry. They will be able to play keyboards and at least one other instrument, a strong vocalist and an enthusiastic leader for our praise bands. They will choose all music for our traditional and contemporary services, will produce our weekly powerpoint slide shows using PowerPoint or EasyWorship and will supervise the pianist serving under them. They will enjoy working with kids, directing our adult choir and they will be a great addition to our staff.
We want a person with a heart for music and the ability to connect with those in worship. Someone who understands the difference between "performing" and "leading". This would not be a good fit for someone who doesn't see the value of excellence in both traditional liturgical worship and rocking Christian contemporary worship.
We offer a nice salary package with full pension/health benefits, four weeks vacation and an expense account.
We have been without a Director of Music for several months now (our previous person moved to Austin, TX, for a non-church position) so we want to find someone who can start as quickly as possible to be fully ready for fall.
