Job Description:
Sparta Evangelical Free Church (SEFC) is a growing church located in Sussex County of northwest New Jersey. We are a church of 550 - 600 in average attendance on Sunday mornings. SEFC is a missional church seeking to engage its surrounding communities with ministries such as Upward Basketball (480+ kids enrolled in 2009), Summer Soccer Camp (enrollment maxed out field capacity), CareForce – a helps ministry for those who need home repair or grounds work, Celebrate Recovery, CCN satellite seminars and conferences, seasonal musical productions and more. This year, over 90 members will serve on short term missions’ trips to West Virginia, Honduras, Mexico, and the South Seas.

Our current worship is a blend of traditional hymns and contemporary songs. Our music program is an active one that includes adult and youth choirs, ensembles, solo specialists, and full production musicals with children and adults. Current instrumental talent in the church includes keyboards, brass, woodwinds, guitars, and drums.

We are presently looking for a Pastor of Worship and Music to join the existing staff consisting of a Senior Pastor, an Associate Pastor, an Executive Pastor, and a Pastor of Youth. We do not see this as an entry level ministry position but rather are looking for an individual with experience in this area who wants to grow and build this ministry along with the church body. We envision this Pastor leading the body towards developing a deeper passion for worship and its expression, as well as teaching the body what worship is and can be. A full position description can be found on the church website at . If you are interested in this position, please send a cover letter and resume, to Don Bressler, Executive Pastor at
