Southland Community Church is deeply committed and passionate about sharing the love of Christ by caring for each other and positively impacting their community and beyond.


Southland Community Church (SCC) is a non-denominational church that held its first service on May 3, 2009 in the chapel of Wilson St. Pierre Funeral Home in Greenwood, with 193 people in attendance. Having outgrown the chapel on that very first Sunday, services were moved to Sugar Grove Elementary School. Several months later, SCC held their official launch at Center Grove Middle School Central. On August 15, 2010, the first service in its current location at 5800 W. Smith Valley Rd., Greenwood took place. With an average weekly attendance of 450, Southland Church is currently in a building campaign to construct a 700-seat auditorium. This endeavor will propel the church's vision of being an expanding body of believers who fulfill their mission of being and making growing followers of Jesus Christ.


Southland Community Church seeks an individual whose gifting, passion, and calling is to be a Worship Arts Pastor at an intergenerational church like Southland.


The Worship Arts Director for Southland Community Church will work with the Senior Pastor to create and implement a weekend worship experience that is inter-generational, relevant, and God-honoring. The successful candidate must be familiar with traditional worship music/styles and with modern worship elements. The Worship Arts Director will be responsible for all aspects of worship, including order of service, rehearsals, lighting, sound, stage, and video. As a proven team builder they will be able to inspire, motivate, and develop the creative and technical arts teams – both in their unique craft, and spiritually. In addition, they will oversee the production of special outreach events.


The ideal candidate for this position will possess the following experience/skills to scale:


  • At least two years experience as a Worship Pastor or Director with an established church.
  • Preferably a bachelor’s degree at minimum, in a worship or ministry related field.
  • A personal statement of faith consistent with the Statement of Faith of Southland.
  • Vocal and instrumental ability to effectively create and lead both traditional and modern worship services.
  • A passion to create and lead different styles of worship.
  • Ability to attract, train, and mobilize gifted and called musicians to worship ministry.
  • Ability and desire to develop and direct a wide range of instrumentation from a modern band to a classical orchestra.
  • Ability and desire to develop and utilize the choir in the traditional service, when needed.

Southland Community Church is located in Greenwood, Indiana, a south side suburb of Indianapolis. Greenwood is a community with excellent public schools, a tremendous private Christian school as well as many quality home school groups. While the area has a wide variety of excellent churches, county surveys show that only 41% of the population consider themselves active in any congregation. So there is much opportunity for evangelism and compassionate outreach.


Qualified candidates are encouraged to first thoroughly review the Southland website to see if the culture, values, and mission statement of the church is consistent with their own.
