Job Description:

Just a reminder...we are a fun church to be a part of, but this is a part time listing.


Bay West Church launched as a satellite campus of First Baptist Church of Melbourne on Sept. 13, 2009 and after nearly 5 years, we are saying a sad goodbye to a wonderful worship leader and his family, whom God has moved to another adventure in ministry.


That sad day has opened the door on a great opportunity for the right person to partner with campus staff to design creative and impactful works of worship in a team-oriented atmosphere. This opportunity is a chance to work with an experienced worship team, with some freedom to build your creative muscle.


Flexibility, a good attitude, a teachable spirit and the ability to "roll with the punches" are a must.


Palm Bay area

In the last 5 years, Palm Bay, Florida has made national lists for being 8th nationally for divorces per capita, 5th nationally for home foreclosures per capita, and 2nd nationally for heavy alcohol abuse per capita.  Some might see that as a place to avoid, but we see it as a tremendous opportunity for God to move in an amazing way, creating stories that we will tell our grandchildren about one day.  

Bay West Campus
We are a group of believers that is made up primarily of those who have recently come to faith or have returned after many years of not following God.  The people are eager to learn and grow and God has blessed us tremendously with an eclectic mix of followers of Christ.  We believe in making disciples, not just converts, and work toward that end.  The campus size is about 120-130 total on Sundays.

Desirable traits & skills to have:

- A vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ

- A good work ethic with an eye for excellence

- Exceptional vocal skill and musicality

- Instrumental skills and charting songs are a plus, not required.

- A good knowledge of current worship music

- Ability to lead a worship team (singers, band, media)

- The willingness to grow/improve

- The ability to hit deadlines consistently

- Good organizational skills

- A creative spirit, with the ability to think to the goal, not just the current system


Other desired, but not deal-breaker, skills:

- Software proficiency (MS Office, Google Docs, Planning Center Online, ProPresenter)

- Basic knowledge of sound reinforcement and video technology

- Good knowledge of how to utilize the internet and social media and/or a willingness to learn.


Time commitment: 8-10 hours approx.

- Play in and direct the band for Bay West Church’s Sunday morning gathering

- Conduct rehearsals to prepare for Sundays

- Team Meetings (Planning/Creative & Staff) as assigned

- Availability for leadership at campus events as needed
- Other duties as assigned


The ideal candidate will come to Bay West Church to invest their lives and the lives of their family to reach the people of Palm Bay, FL for Christ and will be ready to support the church completely in its vision by being an example and leading others to support the vision as well..


This position is part-time to start at this campus, with the ability to become full-time as the demands of the campus require it.


EDIT:  This job is part time, but there is a possible add-on set of responsibilities as Community Impact Leader.  This position manages our relationship with community ministries, and leads our other efforts to reach out to the community.  If the individual's gifts, abilities and also family/work schedule would allow a healthy add to this position.  I'm not interested in running someone into the ground for the sake of "healhty ministry".

Please send cover letter, resume and a DVD of you leading worship (or link to video is great as well) to apply for the position.  No phone calls please.
