Dir. of Modern Worship (Full-time)



Director of Modern Worship

This has been listed as part-time since late September on  The job has been upgraded to full-time as of October 21st.



Full-time + Benefits



College time spent in Music or Bible preferred, although not required. College degree/certificate is a plus.  Must have led worship before and at a minimum of a few years (preferred).



Ward Church is looking for an individual to lead our Modern Worship services. This worship service does music like Elevation, Hillsong, Matt Maher, Bethel, All Sons, Tomlin, Jobe, etc.  We are a church with an emphasis on reformed worship and liturgy (creeds, confessions, Lord’s Prayer, etc) and we also highly value tying in songs and other elements thematically with the sermon topic’s big idea.  Think sort of ancient-future.  This worship service is intended to cultivate a celebratory and a meditative space for worshipers.



This Christian must be a people person and more concerned with the things of God and relationships with people than with getting the job done.  We, who are involved in music ministry, have to produce a product each week to help people experience the Lord.  We also want to see video and hear some audio of you.  Seeing you lead worship and hearing your musicianship is a key part of this process, as well.  In general, we’re looking for a strong community builder, for a high level of vocal and instrumental musicianship, and lastly to see if you’re highly responsible in your communications with people in person and electronically.



Ward is a Presbyterian church and is part of the EPC (Evangelical Presbyterian Church –  Ward currently averages around 1,500-2,000 in attendance every week – half of which are in the Modern services. We are an affluent suburban Detroit community in Northville, MI about 30min west of Detroit. 



We would love to hear from you if feel led to investigate this opportunity for ministry employment further.  If you are interested, please send your resume, references and video/audio links to Billy Petty, Director of Worship + Production at
