Job Description:

Good Shepherd UMC has had a praise band for nearly a decade, and we are in need of new directions and new leadership. We already have a fine drummer and some young singers. We have a sanctuary newly furnished with large TV screens to enhance contemporary worship, and a new cutting-edge digital organ. We also have a Yamaha Motif XS8 keyboard.


The preferred candidate for this position:

1)      Will have praise band experience.

2)      Has a sincere Christian faith.

3)      Will play an instrument – preferably a guitar or keyboard. But if you meet the other qualifications, and don’t play an instrument – we can talk.

4)      Is willing to talk and work with the church leadership about where the contemporary service is, and where it needs to go.


It would also be mutually helpful if the candidate lived within a reasonable distance of Oswego. And vocal ability would be great, but not essential.  The compensation is negotiable, but less than 10k.
