Faith Church is a fast-growing growing, multi-site church of approximately 600 in the Greater Lansing area of Michigan. We currently have two campuses, with a third campus set to launch in February 2016. We are committed to helping people do life like
Jesus, which we believe means doing life with God, with each other, and with the community. This vision is played out through our Missional Communities.
We are currently looking to hire a Worship Arts Pastor. This individual will lead the Creative, Music and Technical Arts teams at our Eastwood Campus (our live campus), while providing creative and technical arts oversight and training to weekend services
at all 3 of our campuses. The right person for this job is someone who thinks “team” first and is consumed by training, equipping, and multiplying leaders. The right person is also someone who loves having and creating fun, and most of all someone who loves
Jesus and loves helping others get to know Jesus.
To help you get a feel for the culture that we are developing at Faith, here are some things you will hear us say often: No Preferences Allowed, No Perfect People Allowed, Work Hard and Play Hard, look for where God is at work and join him, control what
you can control, do for one what you wish you could do for everyone, and lead with Grace. If these things resonate with you, keep reading!
