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.


Experience:  The successful candidate MUST be an experienced worship pastor/leader with a proven track record of developing talent and other leaders, managing a multi-faceted worship ministry, and creating a cutting-edge worship experience.
