Worship Pastor Job Description


Hello from the Rock Church here in Danville, IL. We are a non-denominational, mission’s-minded, growing church of 325. We are looking for a Spirit-filled Worship Pastor. We are looking for someone who has been baptized in the Holy Spirit and leads worship with  a prophetic edge. We see people every week saved, healed and delivered by the power of God. Our mission is to persuade generations to take a “Journey Into God’s Greatness” … a journey that provokes passion to lead, live and love like Christ. Our Goal is - every service will lead to an encounter with  the greatness of God.

Parts of the Journey into God’s Greatness include: Great Expectation -  1 Peter 1:3 NLT; Great Praise;  Great Faith - Matthew 8:10 ( New King James); and of course, The Great Commission - Matthew 28:18-20.


The Worship Leader Position will be commensurate with experience. You must be spirit-baptized (tongues), and know how to let the Spirit have

His way and take over our agenda with prophetic playing and singing. We are looking for a Worship Pastor with a prophetic edge and a mission’s-minded heart. We, as Senior Pastors at the Rock Church are Christ for the Nations graduates and we believe in celebration-type praise and intimate worship as a part of a worship service.  You need to be able to play and lead with an instrument…piano or guitar. We believe the height of our praise determines the depth of our worship. We don’t target an age group; we target an attitude.


A PLUS for this position would be experience leading youth, and guitar leading / keyboard,


The position calls for a person who is visionary and creative in the ways and means of leading people to God. The position serves as the coordinator to all aspects of worship and performing arts. The position is a pastoral position and therefore requires the individual to be able to serve not solely as the worship leader but also as a shepherd to the people who serve in this ministry. Shepherding people is an often overlooked aspect to the position. This person will plan worship conferences, develop a school of worship and have the opportunity for 1 paid missions trip a year with our Global  X Missions teams. We have a Mon – Th work week with most Fridays and Saturdays off for family and Sunday is a ministry day, of course . Other benefits include: Christmas bonus, paid vacation, a group insurance plan (where half is paid by the church.) 



Along with Worship Pastor responsibilities you would be expected to:


1. Direct all weekly activities, rehearsals, etc necessary to facilitate worship in services and choose music for services, holiday services & special events. We want you to be able to develop new worship leaders and teams here at the Rock.


2. Find & plan ways to use music to reach out to the community evangelistically (& a yearly Praise & Worship Conference.)


3. Work with the Sound Team to ensure all equipment is up to date & working.




The worship pastor will report directly to the Senior Pastor who oversees all staff functioning in a ministerial or shepherding position. The person will work closely and regularly with the Senior Pastor in Sunday morning worship development and coordination & will help lead our Tuesday evening prayer, praise and worship night in worship. The pastor believes in a first among equals approach not a dictatorship. The church is an eldership driven church not a board ran church.



Applications in the form of a resume will be received now until the position is filled. If you are interested in submitting your application, please either mail or email your resume, along with an audio and/or video example of your ministry or how to find it online. Thank you very much.
