Other Stuff
A little about us - The church is Riverside Community Church Assembly of God ( We  have 600-650 people that attend 2 worship sites, 4 services on Sunday mornings. The church is well established and undergoing some staff transition.

A little bit about the Student Ministry (Nexus) - Check us out at, @nexussm on Twitter, @nexussm on Instagram and search #nexussm on Instagram. Download the Nexus Student Ministry App and check out some of the videos.

Our former worship director was awesome and just left to start a church. He laid such a great foundation and we really need someone passionate about student ministry worship, tech and creativity to help us with the next leg of the journey. 

It's important (absolutely number 1 on our priority list right now) to find a super awesome, great fitting, best in the world worship leader for our student ministry! So much of the life and culture of our growing student ministry has been shaped around dynamic, creative, tech infused, powerful worship. It's so important to our future that we find someone truly unique and exceptional to fill this position and become part of our family. We really believe this is the only missing ingredient to explosive growth here.

In addition to the stuff above, and maybe somewhat redundant at points, we are looking for:

Competent worship leader with a passion for students/student ministry and worship
Competent musician with a great voice

High energy worship leader
Able to develop and work with teams
Tech (sound, lighting) competency and aptitude
Hard worker with vision and creativity that can hit the ground running
Mature and low maintenance personality
Someone who can laugh and doesn't take themselves too seriously
HUMBLE TEAM PLAYER WHO IS WILLING TO LEARN (Someone who's the awesomest but doesn't think they're the awesomest)
Someone who's happy and content to be in student ministry and loves students.

Pittsburgh is a great place to live and great things are possible in ministry here. We hope some adventurous person will be drawn to what God is doing here and want to be a part of it!


Resumes should include a recent video of you leading that you feel reflects who you are as a worship leader.
