EdgeWater Church is a new, non-denominational church-start in the Southside (Gadsden) region of Alabama. We are excited about this new opportunity in Southside. We are looking for a strong leader to oversee the creative arts ministry of this new, contemporary church. Presently the church meets at Gadsden State Community College.
The ideal candidate will have a passion for all types of worship and be able to lead contemporary praise teams, ensembles, as well as a praise band and vocal groups.
The ideal candidate will not only be gifted vocally and instrumentally, but he will have a true pastor’s heart. Performance is great, but people are the key for us!
The ideal candidate will be able to answer “yes” to the following questions:
- Are you driven to lead others into God’s presence?
- Are you a leader with a pastor’s heart?
- Do you bleed community and love people?
- Are you an accomplished, trained musician?
- Has God blessed you with a vocal gift that is affirmed by others?

- Equally gifted in leading blended as well as contemporary formats.
- Experience leading, growing, and developing praise bands, vocal teams and musical groups.
- A proven track record of developing/growing an existing worship program.
- A worship philosophy that recognizes that worship is not as much about methodology as it is a celebration of who God is and what He wants from us.
- A history of working as part of a team - working closely with senior pastor, senior staff, and the worship ministry.
- Must be able to connect with a diversity of ages represented by the church's attenders.
- The ability to lead worship proficiently with an acoustic or electric guitar rather than perform.
- Strong vocal ability with range, depth, and clarity in style and presentation.
- Must have a good musical ear and the ability to help others learn parts.
- Must have a strong work ethic and a passion for growth and strategic planning.
- Must be well organized.
- Must be deeply grounded and versed in the Scripture.
Preferred Experience / Skills:
• Bachelor’s Degree or its equivalent.
• At least 3 years experience in worship leadership.
