Job Type: Full-Time

Job Description:

Well, since a certain prolific contemporary Christian song writer and worship leader has (thus far) failed to respond to our ad...we're at it again!


OK, so maybe you're not THE aforementioned artist we’re referring to [if you are, consider this a “gentle nudge” to get your application package submitted J]…and maybe we're not quite the size of church body (yet) that would attract said artist, but that's not how we think.  Our passion at E-Free is to "Meet as many people as possible right where they are and help move them to where God wants them to be." DL Moody said, "If God be your partner, make your plans large."  To that end, with God on our side, we're pretty sure there isn't anything we can't do to advance His kingdom.


The Lord has blessed us with a season of expansion and we are humbled that He is using E-Free church to not only reach the lost throughout all of Northern Michigan, but globally as well.  In addition to our two (for now) brick and mortar campuses, we have multiple radio ministries on secular radio, a television ministry on the local CBS affiliate and we broadcast our services across the globe via the web.  Seeking and saving the lost cannot be done by sitting in church seats alone.  We believe the Great Commission has a strong "Now go out there and get 'em" component to it!


If the Lord has blessed you with the artistic gifts to play, sing and lead His people in whole hearted worship to Him, combined with the Leadership skills to build, coach, administer and love the people within the ministry...than we would ask that you stop, pray and listen, to see if this is the opportunity the Lord has been preparing you for.


We are prayerfully seeking the person that God has already chosen to be our next Director of Worship Arts.  If you feel God's leading, PLEASE DO NOT apply through this ad.  To be considered for this position please visit  review the information, then submit your initial application, cover letter, resume, and performance video to

A Little (more) About Us:
We are a "seeker-friendly", multi-generational body of believers with strong teen, youth and children's ministries.  Church leadership, while dynamic and forward thinking, is grounded in scripture.  We strive to find creative and innovative methods to present the gospel and worship God in meaningful ways that change lives.  It's more than just contemporary music; it's about purpose over preference and substance over style...all for the glory of God.


We are located in the heart of beautiful Northern Michigan.  Although His abilities far exceed what we can observe here on earth, this land gives witness to the breadth and width our God's creation...from the gentle stream flowing through pristine forest, to the beautiful and sometimes magnificently violent shorelines of the Great Lakes.  [Not to mention, if you love winter sports:  do you know that one line in that one song, that talks about "...heavenly storehouses laden with snow".  Yeah, we're one such storehouse...sniff, just sayin’.]


While having the feel of typical "small town America", being a tourist destination affords the local area with more services and activities than one might imagine of an area of similar population (which nearly doubles on weekends and holidays).  Northern Michigan is a “nature lover’s paradise”.  The community is warm and inviting...combined with excellent schools and a low cost of living, makes this a great place to raise a family.


Again:  PLEASE DO NOT apply through this ad.  To be considered for this position please visit  review the information, then submit your initial application, cover letter, resume, and performance video to
