Job Description:

God is doing great work at Henderson Hills, stirring His body of believers to be increasingly outward-focused as they aim to train and release leaders for Gospel advancement.

Henderson Hills Baptist Church was planted as a mission church 52 years ago from First Baptist Church of Edmond. Over these years, the church has been a faithful, vibrant, and distinctly friendly entity, which by God’s grace has faithfully preached the Gospel over the past few decades. Twenty-four years ago the church called Dennis Newkirk to be its Senior Pastor, and his legacy of leadership continues to lead the mission of Henderson Hills today. Over the past ten years, Henderson Hills has grown to be a vibrant training and sending church with ministries that are consistently training and releasing post-seminary pastoral residents, while creating a pipeline for such a caliber of individuals through college-aged intern programs, long-term missions programs, and the like.


As a pastor of Henderson Hills Baptist Church, the position of Worship Pastor will be uniquely responsible to oversee the music and arts ministries of HHBC. He will first and foremost, be a pastor-leader, who aims to develop other leaders, disciple them, and release them in ministry. This role is to ultimately ensure that the corporate worship times of the church are biblically saturated, un-distractingly excellent, and aligned with HHBC’s Philosophy of Corporate Worship.


Although not a prerequisite for the position, a bachelor’s degree in a relevant field is desired for the position. This individual will be an inspiring leader who is capable and trustworthy, with a strong ability to collaborate and manage conflict, while constantly pursuing excellence in every area of the worship ministry. Core competencies for the position includes:

  • Possess a pastor’s heart and meet the qualifications of an elder
  • Fit within the culture and vision of Henderson Hills
  • Skillfully lead congregational worship in a large church
  • Have a proven track record of pastoral leadership
