Job Description:

Urban nine-year old church in the heart of the Plaza Midwood historic district in Charlotte, NC seeking to expand our Worship Leading/Creative Arts team. We are on the hunt for an experienced Worship Leader and people/experience cultivator. Our staff is a lively, passionate team who are relationally and spiritually connected and chemistry is vital to our community's heart. Our church mainly focuses on 2 groups of people: those who have no relationship with God and are in process and those who love God and desire to invest in those who don't. 

Our Sunday morning gathering environments are contemplative with a proclivity towards positivity and joy, and because of the culture in which we exist, we are processing theologically progressive conversation and need our staff to be able to navigate these waters in our urban culture. Our band format is semi-pared down (not massive) straightforward rock band, some original music, some mix of covers from the Hillsong United/All Sons & Daughters/Gungor/Hymns-revisited vein and then sometimes music as an element for reflection (songs we've done lately in this category would be from artists like Sleeping At Last, The Oh Hellos, Civil Twilight). 

The applicant must have experience in: 
+ leading worship musically and verbally in corporate settings 
+ communicating with skill both verbally and in writing 
+ volunteer recruitment and development 
+ pastoring people (relationally/spiritually) 
+ creating moving experiences that connect people unacquainted with God to Him (not just a cover song player. Someone who understands making something unique that reaches the very diverse crowd that compromises our community and the ever changing ways to best reach and connect with them) 
+ media (Pro Presenter, sound/tech boards and gear, some video editing knowledge would be helpful) 
+ guitar –our music is mostly guitar driven so this is a must 
+ vocally leading with confidence/skill and the ability to develop volunteer vocalists (harmonizing, etc.) 
+ administration – a large chunk of leading our band members is scheduling and maintaining our Planning Center Online Account 
+ improvisational leadership (dealing well with change, sensing context and setting and interpreting with heart) 

Applicant is asked to please fill out this form ( and include video footage of yourself leading worship in a corporate setting showcasing your ability to improvise and facilitate transitions, along with a resume/C.V.
