Eastlake Church is a large non-denominational church led by Pastor Mike Meeks near San Diego, CA. The church started in 1991 with just three families and has grown to over 6,000 attendees each weekend. They are a multi-site church with nine campuses, which includes an online campus and a central campus in the city of Chula Vista. The campuses are spread across the Southern California region, which extends to Salt Lake City in Utah, as well as the region of Tijuana in Mexico. Torrey Pines Church is a member of the Eastlake Church Network. 


Torrey Pines Church is fast-paced, high-impact, and cross-cultural. It epitomizes the shorts and ?ip-?ops-wearing culture of Southern California. Most attendees live within 5-10 miles of the church, as does the staff. The church addresses and supports social justice endeavors such as human trafficking, homelessness in Mexico, and orphan care. At Torrey Pines, one will find two areas that are at the forefront of the church—small groups and weekend worship. Every aspect of culture and ministry programming derives from these two foundations. Torrey Pines is poised for growth, and exists to be a place for one to grow spiritually, build friendships, and make a difference both locally and globally.


The Worship Pastor is responsible for all elements of service execution, including worship leading, team building, recruitment, pastoral leadership, creative planning, technical execution, pre-production work, as well as facility and resource management as it pertains to music and technical logistics of the responsibilities. They will creatively duplicate the service standards of the Eastlake Church Network, which includes the seamless integration of both contemporary and blended worship expressions, and achieve excellence through appropriate musical adaptations. This individual will work in close collaboration with the Creative Arts Pastor of Eastlake in order to reproduce the same DNA of worship evident within the church network.


A Bachelor’s Degree in Music is strongly preferred for this position, which will be complemented with equivalent professional experience. The ideal candidate for this role will possess strong shepherding skills with a heart of authenticity, discernment, and development, alongside a warm, humble, engaging, and approachable nature. They will demonstrate effectiveness in implementing and executing the programming standards of the church. Success in this position will largely be measured by an exeedingly strong sense of musicality, the succesful execution of both blended and contemporary worship expressions in sync with the Eastlake Network, an increased attendance at weekend worship services, a collaborative sense of unity among teams, and excellence in worship where diverse services are celebrated through the seamless navigation of traditional and contemporary worship.
