Job Description:


Carlisle Evangelical Free Church (CEFC) is seeking a full time Worship Leader/Pastor.  The ideal candidate will have formal musical training and a 2-3 years experience in leading worship by guitar or keyboard.  We are a casual, contemporary, Christian church that exists to help people live All of life for Christ. In order to do that we focus on 3 main areas:

                1) Growing in Christ - Learning about Jesus, who he is and who he has called us to be.

                2) Building One Another Up - A strong relationship with Jesus is greatly enhanced by having strong God-honoring relationships. 

                3) Sent Out to Serve -  God has called us to serve in our community and in the world. 


Carlisle, PA, “the 16th best small town in the US,” features big city amenities yet the quaint charm many people grow up dreaming of living as they settle down. The historical character of the architecture, wide spectrum of culinary options, and lush green forested hiking trails (including the Appalachian Trail) allow for people of all walks of life to find the comfort they seek in finding a town to call home.  Whether you prefer the draw of local coffee shops, restaurants, and boutiques, or need to run quickly in and out of a big box store, everything is just a short drive away.  Also, if you would like access to larger cities, Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York City are all a 2-3 hour drive away. 


CEFC is a rapidly growing church of approximately 1600 in south-central PA.  A majority of our growth has been amongst families with young children.  That growth has sparked the need to add a second venue on campus Sunday mornings that will be an acoustic video venue starting in the Fall. The position we would like to fill is a worship leader/pastor in our main worship center.  The music style in that room is similar to Bethel, Elevation, Vertical Church, Tomlin, and usually a modernized hymn most weeks. We have a gifted group of musicians and singers who are accustomed to adapting their personal styles to work towards a unified end with each song.  They are all comfortable working with click/track.
