Ovilla United Methodist Church has an immediate opening for a part-time worship leader in both the 8:30 AM Sunday morning contemporary worship service (avg. attendance 150), and the Sunday evening youth worship service (avg. attendance 30). Ovilla, Texas is located in Ellis County and is a growing suburb of the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Ovilla United Methodist Church holds an evangelical belief in Wesleyan-Arminian theology of prevenient, justifying, and sanctifying grace.  With a focus on personal and corporate evangelism as well as local and global missions, the church has an exciting long-term vision of ministry in the community and beyond.

Interested individuals may send a resume (and possibly a sample the individual leading worship in an MP3 format) to and
