Northlake Church is a dynamic, relevant, and growing congregation of 230+ in the beautiful hill country of Texas.  We are located in Lago Vista, which is close to Cedar Park and Austin, nestled beautifully on the north shore of Lake Travis. We are a non-denominational, non-charismatic evangelical church drawing people from all backgrounds. Our vision is to accomplish Jesus’ command to love him with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength and to love our neighbor as ourselves.  Our mission is to accomplish Jesus’ command to make disciples (who make disciples) of all nations, baptizing them and teaching them everything that Jesus commanded us. Our values are to become a church modeled after Acts 2:42…devoting ourselves to the Apostles teachings, to fellowship, to sharing in meals and to prayer.


In 2006 we were planted from two churches in Cedar Park with about 60 people who were feeling led to start a church in their own community.  For the first 8 years we met in a school but in 2015 we purchased a permanent home and are in the process of making our new home “work” for our ministry needs. We also started our Missional Communities this year called GoGroups and are really excited about the transformation we believe this will have in our church family.



In 2014, Northlake Church hired a new Lead Pastor and Family Ministries Pastor.  We are now looking to fill a full time Worship Pastor position to join our growing church and staff.  The ministry is ready to be led and hasn’t had a paid staff person since late 2013, currently being led by volunteers and doing a great job, it has just outgrown their capacity and it is time to open up the position for a full time Pastor.



We are looking for a passionate worshipper of God to lead our church in authentic worship. This person will possess: evident godly character, demonstrated servant leadership, exceptional musical ability, and proven team-building skills—all of these affirmed in the local church setting. The worship pastor will be responsible for the weekend worship experience, working in conjunction with our teaching pastors. Primary duties include:

  • Direct oversight over our worship arts team and AVL tech teams.
  • Must be a high level musician: great singer vocally, play instruments (lead with acoustic guitar preferred), our hope is that you are the best musician in the church…to equip, train and draw other musicians to be a part of this team.
  • Must have the skill and experience in leading in the musical style of Austin Stone, All Sons and Daughters, and similar bands...not looking for traditional setting, choirs etc.  We are currently leading with a band, and are looking for someone who has the creativity and skill to lead and build this ministry…with the main focus of worshipping Jesus...period. 
  • Proficiency in leading teams along with strong people skills are a must. 


Secondarily this person will also share in carrying out congregational pastoral responsibilities as well as overseeing and leading our Welcome Ministries team. A bachelor’s degree is highly preferred. 5 years of relevant church worship leading is preferred— church experience (250+) is preferred.
