Job Description

Our Mission at Grace: Because God has ignited a PASSION in us, we meet others on their JOURNEY and connect them to Jesus and His MISSION!

Our Desire in a Worship Leader: A person who hungers after and experiences the Presence and Power of the Holy Spirit among us in corporate times of worship, small group devotion, special holiday services, community outreaches and team practices and retreats. This is accomplished through celebrating God’s promised Presence among us and surrendering afresh to His designs for the moment. Will seek to enjoy God’s Presence without a performance mentality, but with humility before a gracious and loving God.

Corporate Worship is the time when God stokes our PASSION.
Small Group Teams, Practices and Retreats engage our people on their JOURNEY.
All this for the purpose of reaching out to more and more people on their journey, outside the walls of the church, with Christ’s passionate love so we can fulfill God’s MISSION.
