Job Description:

Do you have a desire to be a part of a church focused on making a huge impact for the Kingdom? Do you long to use your media and technical skills and abilities to help create God-honoring worship experiences? Do you like to work hard, but enjoy having fun doing it? Do you want to invest your life pouring into some of the most amazing volunteers you’ll ever meet? Are you a “team player”?


Does the D.C. area sound like a place you’d like to live? If you answered “yes” to these questions, keep reading about our position of Technical Director at Burke Community Church.


Located just 15 miles outside of Washington, D.C., Burke Community is a fast-growing, Bible-based non-denominational church of over 2,800 that has seen phenomenal growth since 2009. We are now poised to take huge “next steps” in the years ahead as we expand our campus with a new Worship Center, offices, lobby, café, and more. What’s missing is the right person to join our Worship Arts team to lead the way forward in all things technical; a servant leader that has the ability to communicate vision, build teams, and pour into the lives of volunteers with a genuine heart for ministry.

Reports to: Worship Pastor


Key Responsibilities

Oversee all technology on the BCC campus - Provide oversight for all A/V maintenance, installation, and upgrades. Assist other ministries within the church in planning for future A/V needs as an expert consultant and by helping to identify and train volunteers within their ministry areas. Help prepare the A/V portion of the Worship Arts annual budget.


Care for the tech volunteers and grow the team - Invest in the lives of the amazing tech volunteers who serve at BCC and be a champion for adding more people to serve on the Tech Team. Train team members in different roles such as Slide, Lighting, Sound, Video, and Camera Operators
