Job Description:

New Horizon Church, known for its contemporary worship and musicality, is looking for a key creative leader to serve as Worship Pastor in this growing church community.  


Responsibilities:  The individual in this role will be expected to shape a high-powered performance team of musicians, singers and technicians.  In this highly visible role, s/he will take the lead in driving the creative process, designing worship services and special programming, including graphics, media, and technical dynamics, and leading worship from the platform.  S/He will work closely with the Senior Pastor, supporting weekly messages and sermon series from a musical and technical design perspective.  Additional duties include recruiting, training and developing talent and leaders; goal-setting, strategic planning and execution; budget management; and coordinating ministry activities.


Accountability:  This person will be held responsible for the overall “success” of  Sunday services, including driving and contributing to the creative process as it relates to musicality, sound, lighting, media and stage design; stage and equipment maintenance; discipleship and fellowship; facilitating leadership development and empowerment amongst worship team; goal attainment; and overall growth and development of the church.


Character:  Worship is something that should engage the entire person – spirit, soul, and body!  God is the final consumer of our worship, but the goal of the worship team is to lead the congregation into worship.  The members of the worship team are servants, with the leader setting the example and leading the call.  Therefore, the Worship Leader needs to know the word of God, be skillful in leading, demonstrate a servant’s heart, effectively pastor and disciple team members, and partner with others in achieving goals.  While artistry, freshness and creativity are important, emphasis will be placed on leadership development, discipleship, fellowship and service.
