Job Description:

Diector of Worship and Education


"The Walk, a church family experiencing spiritual renewal in a fast-growing suburban community, is looking for an individual with the following gifts/education:


1. A music/worship background - we are ready to launch contemporary worship and seeking an individual who can coordinate/direct a praise group and lead the musical side of weekly worship.

2. An education background (this could include music education) - we are seeking an individual who can develop and implement an education plan for our church that will provide all ages the opportunity to know, choose, serve and share Jesus.

3. Additional roles could (but do not necessarily have to) include direction of adult and youth choirs for traditional worship, accompaniment of hymns at traditional worship service and leadership of youth ministries.


This is an ideal, full time role for someone who wants to develop, put their stamp on and grow new ministries from the ground floor up. The Director of Worship and Education will work directly with the Pastor whose management style is to cast vision and empower those around him.


"The Walk" is an evangelical-leaning church family with worship services grounded in Biblically-based preaching. The majority of church family members participate in weekly, in-home growth groups. The vision and mission of the church is (1) to know God personally through a high commitment to being in the word through corporate worship and personal study, (2) love Jesus passionately through a commitment to fellowship with and encouragement of fellow members for the purpose of growing in faith, and (3) to have our lives filled with purpose through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit as we discover and utilize our God-given gifts that others might know Jesus.


“The Walk” is located in Norwalk, Iowa. Norwalk is on the southern edge of Des Moines, the capital city of Iowa. It is a fast growing bedroom community minutes from all the advantages of the city. The community is filled with young families with the median age of residents at 36 years old.


This is a full-time, salaried position. Salary will be based upon the number of roles (as noted above) that the prospect can fulfill.
