The Minister of Music Search Committee of Westgate Memorial Baptist Church (WMBC) has begun the search for a new Minister of Music due to the retirement of our current one, Jim Guthrie. Qualifications include:

  • An accomplished musician
  • Experience as a Minister of Music in a Baptist church
  • Experience with adult, youth, and children’s choirs

We consider our congregational music to be blended in style. Our pastor and ministers believe this to have a unifying effect in our worship services. Different aspects of our current music program include:

  • An adult choir which sings special music at most morning worship services, often including extended performances at Christmas and in the Spring
  • A 12-16 piece orchestra including strings, rhythm, woodwinds, and brass
  • An A/V team which provides audio and video projection during worship and other presentations
  • Youth choirs that periodically provide special music in the evening worship and participate in mission/music events in the summer
  • Children’s choirs that also periodically sing in the evening worship
  • Drama teams

The Search Committee is asking interested, qualified candidates to mail

  • A cover letter describing how your qualifications are a good fit for WMBC
  • A resume with personal and professional references
  • Personal testimony of your salvation experience and call to ministry
  • DVD of a worship service in which you are leading

The committee, along with the staff of WMBC, has begun praying for God’s guidance in our search and will prayerfully consider all applicants for this position.
