Ottawa Lake, Michigan, United States

Denominations: Free Methodist
Church Size: 1001 to 1500
Job Type: Full-Time
CrossRoads Community Church (CCC) has an immediate opening for a flexible, energetic, fun to work with, highly motivated, Spirit-filled, modern worship leader/ Music Director (nothing like high expectations!) for a growing culturally relevant and progressive church of about 1200 in weekend attendance.
Since the early 1990’s Crossroads (philosophically) has been a “seeker” church, meaning that we have places a high emphasis on music and the arts in helping our services “connect” with those who have never been to church before or haven’t been for a while. For that reason we are very modern in our musical selections, use secular music when applicable (and appropriate) to help people access “God’s truth” for their lives, and worship using current worship resources. We are currently moving in the direction of what you might call “post-seeker” understanding that it is still important to have our services be accessible and engaging, but finding ways to do services that challenge every person to take the next steps in their spiritual journey.
The Music Director will be responsible for working with the Pastor of Creative Arts and Programming to plan and prepare music portions of services and events that flow with larger Creative Arts vision. They will also be responsible to guide and lead the music team (of about 50 members) spiritually, musically; growing team members and developing gifts.
Position includes training, equipping and leading the Vocal, Band and Brass Teams. Must possess vocal strength with the ability to teach and lead entire band. Experience with multiple instruments including keyboard or guitar is preferred. Also must be able to do at least basic music charting and arranging.
