Lead Pastor Mike Schreiner founded Morning Star Church (MSC) fifteen years ago with the vision of creating a “Christ-centered community of imperfect people connecting other imperfect people to the perfect love of God.” Their mission and way of accomplishing this vision has, from the beginning, been to “form fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ by meeting people right where they are and helping them take their next step on their spiritual journey.”


Today, MSC has two daughter churches and an on-site “Venue,” boasting a combined average worship attendance of 2,300. MSC is a healthy, growing church with a modern worship culture that is called by God to help others take steps on their spiritual journey to become fully devoted followers of Christ bybeginning, belonging, becoming, and blessing.

The Worship Leader will bring fresh passion to the ministry of the church and Worship Department with a strong foundation in vocal and band leadership skills. They will lead a diverse community of followers to engage God through musical worship, and ensure that all MSC worship experiences are executed with excellence through the recruiting, training, and development of leaders and volunteers. 


The successful Worship Leader will use various elements of worship to bring the congregation into God’s presence, encourage, and guide worshippers. The musical worship must embrace a variety in musical styles. For the purpose of successfully executing positional expectations, it is imperative that the prospective candidate is not only a master vocalist, but also possesses proven instrumental competency (in at least one instrument), with the capability of reading and charting musical arrangements.


Success in this position will largely be measured by the development and integration of volunteer training plans that coincide with newly initiated cross-training programs, the effective collaboration with Creative Arts teams, the efficient maintenance of required tech elements of the role, and the sustained excellence in all areas of responsibility. Although formal education is not a predetermining factor for this position, it is likely that the prospective candidate will hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university, with 2-3 years of relevant experience to scale. 


In terms of personal characteristics, this individual will first and foremost, personify a contagious passion for worship. They will possess strong shepherding skills with a heart of authenticity, discernment, and development, alongside a warm, humble, engaging, and approachable nature. The ideal candidate for this position will demonstrate an attitude of excellence that complements the programming standards of the church. They will exercise spiritual disciplines, including Bible study and prayer, and will practice sharing their faith with both believers and non-believers within and outside of the church. 


Dardenne Prairie is located just outside St. Louis and is known for its rich history. It boasts three beautiful parks, where citywide events are often held, and competitive schools. An extremely family-centric area, the community largely consists of young families, where the median household income is well above the state average, in which the population has also doubled in the last 10 years. These two aspects have created great opportunities for businesses, restaurants, and entertainment to come to the city. Additionally, the corporate sector has its share of influence, with Mastercard, CitiGroup, and high tech stationary offices of the mid-management sector occupying business space within the region. Moreover, Dardenne Prairie’s proximity to St. Louis provides its citizens all the opportunities and activities of one of the biggest cities in the United States, while maintaining a personal, small-town feel.
