The purpose of Trinity Church has always been to glorify God in all they do as individuals, and as a congregation of believers in the universal body of Christ. God has brought excellent pastoral leadership to Trinity Church. The authority of God’s written Word has been taught with clarity, mission and truth.    Trinity’s weekend attendance is just above 2000 people.  They are in the early stages of birthing a new era of ministry reach in the community.  The church’s mission statement is to “Glorify God and make disciples by awakening people to full life in Christ.” 


Marvin Williams, the Lead Pastor is a fantastic communicator and Bible teacher.  He truly has a heart to reach those who don’t know Christ, and see Trinity be a tangible representation of Jesus to the community.  Marvin’s collaborative leadership style welcomes new ideas, and allows for new initiatives to surface to the top. His heart is always seeking a fresh move of Holy Spirit and an active call from God. 


The greater Lansing area has about 500,000 people in the surrounding region.  Lansing offers a stable economy, great neighborhoods with affordable housing, excellent educational institutions, a diverse population and endless entertainment options.  Trinity is in close proximity to Michigan State University, a world class college which offers sporting and performing arts opportunities. 


Less than two hours away from Detroit, Michigan's Capital City is located on the picturesque banks of the Grand River.  The Lansing region was recently awarded the "Five Star Quality of Life Quotient" by Expansion Management magazine -- the only area in Michigan to receive this top rating!


Trinity has enjoyed a rich history of worship and creative arts ministries throughout various ministry seasons. Leveraging the call to be a regional church, Trinity currently uses a team approach in rotating staff and volunteer worship leaders.  This allows for a healthy mix of worship styles from modern worship, urban and even acoustic/Celtic expressions to reflect a connection with the broad multi-cultural demographics God is bringing to this church family. 


We are looking for a Director of Worship and Creative Arts who can give leadership to the arts staff and volunteers, while also having a hands-on role either as a worship leader, or a key production leader in the back of the house.  Trinity has great days ahead.  The spiritual foundation with a history of Holy Spirit impact is already in place.  The Creative Arts team is ready for the right leader to take them to a new level of engagement.  The church leadership is committed to healthy discipleship happening in the context of relationships. 


Job Specifications

Education:  Bachelor’s Degree in appropriate job related field is required; advanced degree preferred.


Experience:  A minimum of five years experience overseeing teams and leading leaders with a technical or musical focus in a church of Trinity’s size or larger is required (1500 people or larger); musical worship leadership skills highly preferred.  Must be an affirmed professional with progressively responsible experience in a creative arts position within a church or ministry.


Work Skill Requirements:  Well-developed leadership, communication and interpersonal skills are required in order to successfully handle problems or situations which are critical to the success of major organizational programs, operations or services.  Ability to creatively articulate vision and strategy of worship service and productions and to effectively and creatively minister to, mentor, coach, teach and encourage others individually or in groups is required.  Effective administrative skills are essential.  Above all, must possess wisdom, knowledge, understanding and passion for Kingdom work as only can be given by the Holy Spirit through an intimate, prayerful relationship with the Lord.
