MinisterSearch ( is delighted to offer a great opportunity for Worship Pastor candidates at a welcoming church in a growing community. This position, as the first full-time Worship & Media Pastor, will provide leadership for the worship environment and have the responsibility for creative planning, with an emphasis on cultural relevance and spiritual reverence.  


The church's mission is to introduce people to Jesus and to follow Him together. Desiring to reach the unchurched and dechurched, they are casual, grace-based, practical, and intentional-they are truly a place of new beginnings. 


The successful candidate will be able to present the Word in worship in a manner that will inspire and engage the congregation to participate, be focused on God, and be prepared to hear the message. Some of the other qualifications include the ability to lead from guitar and/or keys, a passion to be a pastor to the worship team, and a relational personality that thrives in a team environment. 


Located in the Finger Lakes region of New York, this city provides a friendly, smaller town environment with the bonus of having easy access to everything you need and want. The outdoors are truly great--every season of the year! Winter activities run the gamut from downhill and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing to skating and ice fishing. Hiking and biking are big in the area, with well-marked trails through pristine fields and forests and lots of back roads with jaw-dropping views at every turn. And, in the parks and playgrounds that abound in the communities and the area, you'll find tennis, soccer, swimming, basketball, and golf to choose from for leisure activities.  


With a great location and a great ministry that provides the freedom to develop, expand, and impact many lives, this position also offers loving people to serve with and an opportunity to build this worship ministry as its first full-time leader!
