The Slingshot Group www.slingshotgroup.org is partnering with Church of the Cross in search of a
Director of Contemporary Worship & Creative Media for their Cross Point campus only.
The Church of the Cross needs a contemporary worship leader to take this committed and innovative church family to the next level. Building teams, recruiting and developing new talent, and raising up more upfront leaders for future venues are all critical
elements to this role. Additionally, pastoral leadership is desiring this person to take the lead in developing and implementing a virtual campus strategy that would use technology and social media to extend the parish’s Gospel outreach. This is one of the
most amazing multi-site churches in the country.
Services on“The Bluff”of the May River first took place in the early 1830s.The young town of Bluffton was a summer resort for area and inland planters and a stop on the ferry route between Savannah and Beaufort. By 1842, a chapel was built near the current
location ofThe Church of the Cross.The National Register of Historic Places has listed COTC’s ‘Historic Campus’ since 1975, and it is the most photographed church in all of South Carolina.
But even with such a remarkable past, COTC is a vibrant multi-site church of 1,800 that is living with the future in mind. Under the strategic and visionary leadership of Father Chuck Owens, the Crosspoint Campus was launched in 2007 with a commitment to
reach ‘our ever-changing culture with the never-changing truths of Scripture’.To that end the latest technological advances are embraced as welcome tools to expand the parish’s sphere of Gospel influence.
The worship experience at Crosspoint offers a unique and casual contemporary worship experience, especially for young families. Services are Sundays at 9:00 and 10:30, featuring an exceptionally talented worship band, cutting edge environmental visuals,
and a highly skilled technical team. This worship experience is designed to reach the unchurched or formerly churched young families in the booming Low Country peninsula area around Bluffton and Hilton Head island.
-Candidate does not have to be conservative Anglican. The preference is a candidate already experienced in mainstream contemporary worship.
-This position is for the Contemporary services only, on the Cross Point campus. The liturgical worship services have separate, capable leadership.
-The ideal candidate will be an A-level musician with a producer’s eye for production, and the vision to help strategize and execute the next multi-site campus in the next few years.
