Job Description: Director of Worship and Director of Youth Ministries
Full-time salary with health benefits. 40 hours/week.
Location: San Jose, CA (San Francisco Bay Area)
Christ the King Anglican Church is affiliated with "The Mission"-- The Anglican Mission in the Americas: A Society of Mission and Apostolic Works. We are also partnered with the leaders at 3DM, a missional discipleship training group.
An applicant may carefully read through their websites to gain understanding of our identity.
In 2000, Christ the King Anglican Church was a founding member of The Mission. We are Evangelical, Sacramental, and Charismatic in our expression of being the fullness of Christ’s Church. These “Three Streams” are kept in balance as part of our values
and ministry philosophy. For the last 3 years we have been in transition toward a re-launch of the church in mission clarity and outreach to the community. The launch started in 2013 in earnest, and we would like to add someone in strategic leadership to
help us move forward. Like most new church-plants, we are small (about 40 people) and seeking to staff for growth. We have investment funds from which this full-time position will be guaranteed.
Who we are: We identify as this... We are an extended family who balances our lives Up, In, and Out—Up to God in love through worship and prayer; In to Jesus’ church in love through service to the body of Christ; and Out to the community
in love through evangelism and compassion. We say those things in different ways to help people catch that identity vision of Up, In, Out as the basis of loving and missional relationships.
Mission: Reach people for Jesus Christ and Make Disciples who can Re-produce themselves in others.
Numerical growth is not the objective. Making disciples who know how to pass along what they have learned about following the Lord is the objective. We believe that if we make disciples, the church will grow.
Job Description: This full-time position requires a uniquely gifted individual who feels called and passionate about two ministries: worship and youth. The ministry to youth (6th-12th grades) is one half-time role.
Ministry through worship leadership to the whole congregation is the other half-time role. This staff position is not for a "youth worship leader." Additionally, the best fit will be someone already experienced and familiar with liturgical worship, especially
contemporary & traditional Anglican worship. We need this person to have an understanding of how to express and lead worship that is rooted in Anglican heritage yet flexibly expresses in contemporary and relevant ways the purpose of the liturgy and arts in
the liturgical seasons of the year. (Those not presently with an Anglican church but understanding contemporary liturgical worship may send your resume, too.) Here’s an example: We use music from Chris Tomlin, Hillsongs, and Matt Maher often, and we still
regularly say (traditionally) the Nicene Creed and each week set aside time for corporate confession (usually spoken aloud, sometimes silent). We still include hymns (modern and traditional), as well. Think “Ancient-Future.”
The Director of Youth Ministry will also take the primary lead with regard to vision for youth ministries for years to come and work through those ideas prayerfully with the senior pastor, who will provide spiritual direction, support and coaching. The Director
of Youth Ministry will build a team of volunteer leaders and train them. The director will develop leaders-in-training among the youth, too. Leading the midweek gatherings and social functions are part of the director’s role, too. Appropriate funding will
exist for supplies, training and conferences as part of the on-going leadership and development of teams. Time involved is 15-20 hours/week, depending upon the season of the year.
From the perspective of worship, the worship leader will lead vocally and with a guitar and/or keyboard/piano as the primary instruments. The worship leader will help to build, train, and rehearse the team of musicians to serve together in various environments.
The Worship leader will work with the senior pastor to envision the flow of worship according to thematic sermon series and liturgical seasons. As well as being responsible for the administration of the team, information, worship flow, tracking the songs
used in worship (both for reporting to CCLI and to balance use of songs weekly), the leader will handle team scheduling. CTK uses Planning Center Online as the primary resource tool for worship administration across the team. See http://www.planningcenteronline.com.
The leader in this combined role will need to balance the requirements of time needed to find and learn new material with the hands-on team formation and training. Depending upon the week and season of the year, this role could involve 15-30 hours of time
in any given week.
It is expected that when one aspect of the job role increases the other aspect of the job will be reduced. For example, when the demands of worship team leadership increase during the Christmas and Easter seasons, then youth ministry hours will need to decline
during those times.
Note: You will receive a reply acknowledging receipt of your resume. Consideration of candidates will begin by October 10, 2014. You will receive status updates at least every other week. Please don’t call the church office. We will
call you if we want to pursue having conversations.
