It will also include supervision of the worship ministries (and part-time worship directors) at the other two locations.

 

Our church is an evangelical church holding to a historic, orthodox, Biblical view of theology and ministry. Our mission is “making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world” and our vision is “reaching, teaching, and releasing disciplers and leaders for Jesus Christ.” We believe in bringing people into the faith, discipling them to be obedient followers of Jesus Christ, and sending them out to make a kingdom impact in their community and around the world. As such, we are releasing two staff members to become full-time missionaries, creating an opening for a full-time Worship Director beginning in May, 2017.

  • Create worship experiences to go with the theme of each service. These worship orders are implemented at all three campuses by that day’s worship leader, team, preacher, and others participating in that campus’s service. Currently the Selma campus has two Sunday morning services, while Winchester and Yorktown have one each. All services are contemporary with a full praise band leading current praise and worship songs, and also utilizing videos, dramas, visuals, hymns, and other contemporary and traditional elements to reach a wide spectrum of people as they come to worship God.
  • Work with leaders and teams that oversee technology, set designs, and other aspects for creating impactful worship experiences.
  • If full-time, this position will be coupled with another area of ministry that matches your gifts and talents with the church's needs.
