Denominations: Non-Denominational
Church Size: 151 to 250
Job Type: Part-Time

Job Description:
We are dreaming to do church differently! We just don’t want to be like everyone else in our community. What are we like? We are pretty causal and we like to try new approaches to ministry. We are creative and strive to do things with excellence. We are authentically genuine and know that we haven’t arrived. We know how to laugh and have fun. Maybe you would be a great fit with our DNA?

Journey is a five year old church plant that is creatively and passionately reaching out to the unchurched in our county. We are about 300 in size and are in a great family friendly community of about 30,000 with about 400,000 in our county. We are looking for someone who has a similar heart beat to ours and who would enjoy shaping and influencing our worship ministry. We are contemporary in our approach to ministry and we are drawn strongly to stretching ourselves creatively in reaching out to our postmodern culture. Our weekend worship experience is led by an experienced and faithful band and vocal team. In the end, our desire is to create worship experiences that draw in both spiritual seekers and Christ followers. Here’s a brief description of what we are looking for in a leader:
