Job Description:
The Director of Worship and Welcome is a full-time hybrid position that prioritizes leading worship for existing services in one of our two worship venues. This full-time position also will lead Peace's welcome ministries and help spearhead new worship services. Our anticipation is that as worship expansion takes place, this position increasingly will focus solely on worship leadership. (If you are interested solely in the part-time Director of Worship position, please see our other listing on this site.)

Ministry responsibilities include:
-- Direct the planning, coordination, implementation, and evaluation of all worship services in our Community Life Center.
-- Select, enlist, train, and evaluate song leaders, accompanists, and musicians. The qualified applicant will give special focus to recruiting musicians and worship leaders in their 20s and 30s.
-- Oversee our visitor ministry, ensuring that initial contact is made with new worshippers.
-- Oversee our hospitality ministry, ensuring that serving teams are scheduled and trained accordingly.
-- Help to identify new worship opportunities in our existing venues as well as new sites/venues.
-- Help coordinate special worship opportunities, including concerts, praise events, and prayer services.
-- Participate as a team member with the staff in goal-setting, decision-making, and budgeting that affects the entire church.

The qualified applicant will be a committed and growing follower of Jesus, seek to be faithful to God’s Word, be able to clearly communicate the Good News of Jesus to others, be committed to the teachings and doctrine of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, be willing to think “outside the box” of traditional Lutheran culture in developing new worship services, have the spiritual gift of music, and have the ability to engage the hearts of people through music and words.
