Job Description:
Position : Director of Worship Ministries and Creative Arts

Calvary Bible Fellowship, Sinking Spring, PA, is seeking an experienced full-time person to provide leadership for a variety of instrumentalists, vocalists, choir, ensembles, and audio/video technicians. We are looking for a team player who has a passion for worship, a servant’s heart, proven musical skills, and creativity. This person should also possess the ability to develop growing musicians as well as direct experienced musicians to lead congregation members into heartfelt worship. Our ideal candidate will be able to lead a program with live band/orchestra, drama, multimedia and other arts. He must also be a team builder - recruiting others to join in the creative expression of worship. Leading from an instrument (keyboard/guitar) is a plus but he must be a worshipper himself, engaging the heart of the believer in worship and introducing the unchurched to a God who loves them. He will be a self-motivator who will assist us in growing to meet the needs of an ever-changing culture without compromising the life-changing Gospel.

An undergraduate degree in music is preferred.
