Position Objective: To provide pastoral leadership to the worship ministries of Liberty Church. To help people experience and embrace the faith, hope and love of Jesus.

 

Position Description: The worship pastor will be the “producer” of each worship service and special programs.  The senior pastor will be the “director”.

The worship pastor must be a visionary who is creative in leading people to God.  The worship pastor is a leader who can communicate a direction in a way that inspires those around him/her to join in the pursuit of that vision.  This position is a pastoral one that therefore requires the individual to serve not solely as a musical or performing arts director but also as a shepherd to the people who serve in this ministry.
