Associate Pastor with emphasis in Creative Arts and or Youth Ministry
Discovery Church is a 6 year old church plant that has grown from 15 people to a weekly attendance of more than 400. We reach the unchurched people of the Hickory NC area. Our creative environment takes into account the types of music, experience, culture,
and media that unchurched people are gravitating toward. We make creative decisions based on knowing the culture around us.
We're looking for an Associate Pastor who can help us with Creative Arts and/or Youth Ministry. This person will help oversee the development and execution of graphic design, lighting, stage design, video production/editing, short motion-based bumpers for transitions,
and web site management (web design skills not necessary, but a plus). Having a musical background is a plus, but not necessary.
