Job Description:

Job Description: We are looking for the right man or woman who can continue the good thing that has been started! We are a multi-generational church brimming with excitement and enthusiasm who needs someone to take over our worship ministry and continue to build it into one of the strong ministries of our church.


Why we stand out: We are a church that is in the country but we are growing and doing our best to meet the needs of those who walk through our doors. People are driving up to 30 miles to come to Mt Gilead because they are looking for a church that gives solid Bible teaching with grace and love! We work hard to make people feel like they belong and that we can relate to their lives. As we say around here, we take Jesus very serious…ourselves not so much! We love to have fun, be creative and love people while helping them become strong disciples of Jesus.


Our Mission: To reach the skeptic, the disillusioned and the uninformed with the Gospel of a God who came to be one of us so that we could be one with Him! At the same time we want to help believers grow in their faith. We want to motivate the lethargic, challenge the comfortable and engage the seeker! We want to bring our congregation into a place of forgetting what they will be doing tomorrow and focusing on God in our Worship Services.


Our Values:

Be Biblical

Be authentic….always!

Be creative to be effective.

Live like Jesus is your KING!

Have fun.

Church is Family.

Work hard.

We are here to heal the hurting and find the lost and to help believers  grow into strong disciples.


Our Current Situation: We are currently being led by an Interim Worship Leader who will be returning to Graduate classes this fall. For now we are looking for someone who can work 10-15 hours a week. They would be in charge of our Worship Team and collaborate with our Senior Pastor for the Sunday morning Worship Service.


Our Goal: We are hiring part time at this time but we are open to making the position a full-time position when God blesses us with the resources to do so.  Right now we envision the full-time position to include the oversight of our music, audio-video, and perhaps even our presence on social media.  We realize that God's vision for this full-time position will become more clear to us in His time.


What We Need From You: We want you to feel that God is calling you to minister! We need someone who is passionate about their relationship with Jesus and loves to lead others in worshiping Him! We need you to be able to articulate your faith and share that from the stage through your music and insights. We need you to understand how to motivate volunteers and to be a coach as well as a cheerleader. We need you to be a team player who understands the importance of community.


What you can expect from us:  You can expect a Senior Pastor who will give you latitude to work and support you. You can expect sermon topics well in advance to aid in planning and collaboration. You can expect musicians who work hard, and are willing to learn. We currently have one bass player, two available drummers, two available keyboard players(one being our interim worship leader) and three available guitar players(One acoustic, one electric and one either). We have several teams of singers.


Pray About It! We feel that God is doing something special at Mt Gilead and we are launching this search to allow Him to bring that “person” that He has for us, to us. We believe He has a way of bringing people together to further His work and we are praying that if that is you, that you will follow His leading!
