Job Title: Campus Worship Leader

Reports To: Central Services Worship Leader FLSA Status: Salaried | Part-time

Lead Pastor Mike Schreiner founded Morning Star Church (MSC) fifteen years ago with the vision of creating a “Christ-centered community of imperfect people connecting other imperfect people to the perfect love of God.” Their mission and way of accomplishing this vision has, from the beginning, been to “form fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ by meeting people right where they are and helping them take their next step on their spiritual journey.” From the physical campus to our choice of words, MSC is aligned around reaching those without a church home, and this theme resonates across the church staff and the website.

Today, MSC has two daughter churches and an on-site “Venue” and is looking at new growth strategies for 2017, including an off-site Video Campus. With an average worship attendance of 2,300 (including children), MSC is a healthy, growing church with a modern worship culture and a congregation with an average age of 36. Young families are booming at MSC and the energy on campus at each worship service is energizing and fun. Outreach and Celebrate Recovery are ministries with strong in-roads to the local community - and in general, MSC has strong favor and respect from the community at large.

MSC seeks a Worship Leader who brings fresh passion to the ministry with a strong foundation. The Worship Leader will lead a diverse community of followers to engage God through musical worship, and ensure that worship experiences are executed with excellence through the recruiting, training and development of leaders and volunteers. The successful Worship Leader will use the various elements of worship to bring the congregation into God’s presence, and encourage and guide worshippers. The ideal candidate will have proven experience creatively proclaiming the gospel, thereby making disciples and bringing glory to God.

The musical worship must embrace a variety in musical styles, and the current set lists move freely between Hillsong, Jesus Culture, Bethel and revised hymns. Although formal education is not a predetermining factor for this position, it is likely that they will hold a relevant degree from an accredited college or university, with 2-3 years of relevant experience to scale.
