Job Description:

Are you ready to jump on board with an amazing, friendly staff and lead worship with some of the best people around?

Through the leadership of our pastor, Jim Jackson, our church is exploding and we have been recognized as one of the fastest growing churches in the western U.S. As of now we are looking for a part-time, Sunday morning worship leader that may have the option of expanding to full-time in the future. We are band-led mostly in the style of Hillsong/Crowder/Tomlin and would prefer a worship leader who leads vocally on acoustic/electric guitar.


Because we have outgrown our current property, we set up at a Middle School and have 2 services and practice as a band before the first service along with practicing individually throughout the week once the songs are chosen by the worship leader.


ATTENTION: If you are flaky, unorganized, unreliable, looking to be a rock-star, cannot take direction, lack humility, do not feel called to be a long-term worship leader and do not have good references from churches you have led in, do not apply for this position.


HOWEVER: If you want to serve Jesus through serving His church by leading them in song as they worship God, love to get out of the way and facilitate worship from the stage, are gifted vocally and musically, love to stay on top of new music, can write your own songs, will clean a toilet or mow the lawn if asked, then you might be right man so apply.
