Job Description:

Position Objective: To provide pastoral leadership to the worship ministries of Renaissance Community Church.


“Our vision is to be a healthy and reproducing church that in Christ develops

the whole person to experience practical, authentic relationships in all areas of life.”

Position Description: The worship pastor will be the “producer” of each worship service and special programs.  Although the senior pastor is the “director” in terms of setting the theme and overall direction, the worship pastor, in coordination with the worship planning team, will oversee and coordinate all the details that a service encompasses. 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.
