Job Description:

Our mission at Oak Hill is simple. We want Jesus to be the focus. It’s really all about him. Therefore, we strive to do 3 main things:


We want to KNOW Christ personally, GROW in Christ as a family, and SOW Christ locally and globally for the glory of God.


That’s why we’re here. That’s what motivates us each day as we live on mission with God. We want to be a Jesus-centered, grace-filled, gospel-transforming church. 


Over the last few years we have seen God do great things in our church and community. Many people have given their lives to Jesus and have joined our church family. Wednesday night and Sunday morning activities (along with Bible studies and small groups) are busy and growing as both children and adults mature in their relationship with Christ and fellowship with one another.


We’re excited about the opportunity to have a full-time Worship Pastor to help lead a Christ-centered, Spirit-filled worship service at Oak Hill. We are grateful for the time and energy volunteers have given to lead the music ministry at Oak Hill, and are excited to partner with a gifted leader and pastor who can help our church grow even more in this area.
