Minister of Worship Job Description

At First Covenant Church, we seek to 1) worship God for his sake; and 2) see each person view their very lives as an act of worship (Romans 12:1 & 2)

Corporate worship is the lifeblood of our Church and the heart of our individual relationships with Christ. Therefore, in our worship services, we strive to glorify and honor God with our talents and time, offering Him our very best. In addition, we aim to edify all who choose to worship with us. In our Church, the spectrum stretches from the mature believer to the spiritual seeker. We appreciate a variety and balance in styles of music, including traditional, contemporary and blended, as well as the worship arts. Our desire is that worship encourages congregational participation – an active response to God – and that individuals are transformed by the presence of the Holy Spirit.

FCC is a growing multi-generational church that desires to be a high impact transformative community by going deeper in our relationship with Christ and further in our mission to the world. We are looking for an addition to our pastoral team who embraces the mission and vision of the whole church and connects people to that mission through worship.

We are looking for someone who is multi-talented, highly relational, and a team player who has a passion for developing Christ-followers through worship. Outstanding candidates will have media available for listening and or viewing.
