We are looking for a person with a passion for God that is most vibrantly expressed through the voice of music, and is gifted in bringing others into that expression of worship. The ability to play in and lead a band is a must, coupled with the ability to lead vocally. This person must enjoy looking for new and creative ways to express our worship to God including having a value for the visual arts. In this position, one will also need to have the ability to work with others in a team setting and have a heart for leading and challenging their team members to a deeper walk with God, so they too are demonstrating a worship of God with their lives.
The Worship Director will work closely with the Lead Pastor in planning each service and for setting long-term goals. At West Valley, we believe worship involves all the senses; therefore, the Worship Director will be directly involved in developing this full expression of worship within the Body of Christ.

Responsibilities include planning worship services, leading worship as a vocalist/instrumentalist, scheduling/training worship team members, leading technical crews (including sound and lighting), leading drama teams and other administrative duties. Creativity is a must for this position along with the ability to work with others in that process. A sense of humor and the enjoyment of working with others to serve God as part of a team is also extremely important. Graphic design abilities are an essential part of this position.

In addition, applicant must actively promote unity and support of the church. Candidate will be supportive of an egalitarian perspective of ministry.
