Worship Leader

Apex, North Carolina, United States

Date Posted: 01/21/2016
Categories: Worship Pastor
Denominations: United Methodist
Church Size: 251 to 350
Job Type: Full-Time

Job Description:

519church, a multisite campus of the Apex UMC family of faith communities, is currently searching for a new worship leader.  The position can be either part-time or full-time based on your needs.  Primary responsibilities include a) developing and discipling the worship team, b) building worship plans, media and schedules, c) masterminding the equipment needed for Sunday worship.  Additional responsibilities or areas can be added for the full-time position based on your gifts.


There are three main things we think will make you a good fit for the team at 519:


1-You are genuine. In all things we aim to be genuine—excellent, but not unnecessarily polished.  Our whole team tries not to take ourselves too seriously, so that we can take our work seriously.  A willingness to be vulnerable and open about your spiritual journey is as crucial as your ability to love well and live differently.


2-You have a spirituality that is passionate and mature.  We trust that your calling to lead worship runs deeper than simply leading musically.  While we certainly have high standards for musical talent, vocally and with an instrument, we need someone on the team who can take us deeper in our ability to connect with God—an ability to disciple the band and help lead the church.


3-You are all in. We are a portable church that is motivated and continues to flourish.  We expect you to be as committed to the work of the church (not just musically) as we are, and that you will thrive in our mission-centric environment.


There are three main things we think you will love about working with us:


1-We are fun. We work hard and play hard. We laugh a lot and are at our best when we are friends on a mission together, pitching in and helping each other out.


2-There is an enormous opportunity for impact here.  The work we do is sometimes tiring, but always enriching. We are serving in one of the fastest growing, least-churched areas in North Carolina, and we welcome people weekly who are giving church one last chance. If you come, we will build it…the next 2-5 years will be some of our most exciting ones.


3-We really do love well and live differently.  This church has a heart for loving and serving other people, and we do it in creative ways.  This is a great job for anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit, who wants the stability of a large church and the ability to risk new kingdom ventures. This is a place you can grow as a disciple, in your leadership abilities and professionally.


One disclaimer, if it is helpful:

We know that saying “contemporary” doesn’t necessarily mean contemporary with 2016.  When we say contemporary, that’s what we mean. We have a great band who loves a wide array of music. Sometimes we may go a little 80s, sometimes a little more folksy, sometimes we sit in that rich liturgical space that is so needed in the current contemporary worship culture—all with an indie flair.  We love to go big, but we also love to go straight acoustic sometimes. We are also open to experimenting with whatever style you authentically bring.
