The simple job description of our Worship Pastor is to recruit, equip and mobilize teams that facilitate powerful worship experiences for people who are at any point of their faith journey, in alignment with the ECC vision, mission and values.




1. Talent scout, recruiter and developer. Has a passion for people with music gifts and passions finding their place of ministry in the arts. Develops a training pipeline that makes room for people of almost all skill levels to grow their gifts for God.


2. Building and Leading Teams. Is a proven team player who delights in giving ministry away and empowering leaders to experience the thrill of offering meaningful and substantial leadership for the Kingdom.


3. Leading and Engaging people in Worship. Has an ability to help people move toward God in worship. Understands the variety of people who attend any gathering and helps them all engage at their level, and desire to grow to a new level of worship, while helping the "spectator" not lose connection.


4. Has a passion for the local church. Shares our deep conviction that the key to changing the world is the Church; turning congregants into missionaries who intentionally bring Christ into their traffic patterns and view their world as their mission field. Inspires others with their thirst for results and are infectious about the Kingdom. Tenacious and relentlessly positive.


5. Judgment. Makes wise decisions despite ambiguity. Identifies root causes and gets beyond treating symptoms. Thinks strategically and can articulate what they are, and are not, trying to do. Smartly separates what must be done well now, and what can be improved later.


6. Entrepreneur. An initiator who accomplishes his or her vision through the equipping and releasing of people. A self-starter.


7. Strong Communicator. Listens well, is concise and articulate in speech and writing, treats people with respect and maintains poise in stressful situations.


8. Curiousity. Learns rapidly and eagerly. Seeks to understand our strategy, culture, growth opportunities and target audiences. Broadly knowledgable about spiritual formation, team building and leadership. Contributes effectively outside of his/her specialty.


9. Courage. Says what he/she thinks even if it is controversial. Makes tough decisions without excessive agonizing. Questions actions inconsistent with our values.


10. Honesty. Known for their candor and directness. Non-political when they disagree with others. They only say things about fellow team members they have said to their face. Quick to admit mistakes. Open, appropriately transparent and authentic.


11. Selflessness. They seek what is best for ECC, rather than best for themself or their ministry area. Ego-less when searching for the best ideas. Makes time to help colleagues. Shares information openly and proactively.
