Job Type: Full-Time
Rose Drive Friends Church is looking for a ministry leader to join our staff team as our Pastor of Music and Worship. Consistent with our mission to make more faithful followers of Christ, this leader will be passionate about their personal relationship with the Lord, seeing others come into a saving knowledge of Christ and also helping other believers grow in their faith.
This individual must be a gifted worship leader with strong vocal skills and preferably some instrumental abilities. They should have an ability to connect with students and young adult audiences, create and lead worship experiences that appeal to new generations of believers and be familiar with current trends in music while also respecting the preferences of older attenders.
We currently feature multiple worship services with different styles of music. This person will be responsible to coordinate each one in support of the Senior Pastor, but not necessarily to lead each one up front. To fit well in our context, this person must at least have an appreciation for blended and traditional music styles, including choir, orchestra, and hymns, as well as more contemporary music. The ability to lead a choir and orchestra is preferred but not required.
The ideal candidate will be a leader of leaders, overseeing multiple ministry teams (including various praise bands, choir, orchestra, ensembles, drama, and audio/visual teams). Strong leadership and communication skills are necessary to enable this person to identify, recruit, train, and release others to use their giftedness. The ability to work in a multiple staff setting, coach paid and lay staff, and be a “team player” is vital.
This individual must demonstrate planning and organizational ability, creativity and innovation, a “can do” attitude, and have an outgoing and winsome personality. Christmas Eve, Easter, and other seasonal events and productions provide opportunities for outreach coordinated by this leader.
The Pastor of Music and Worship reports directly to the Senior Pastor.
Additional Requirements (including but not necessarily limited to the following):
Ability to apply God’s Word to life and connect music to Biblical themes
Self-starter who is a team player
Knowledge of media and production experience preferred
5+ years experience leading worship in a large church setting is preferred
B.A. degree in music or a related field, graduate degree preferred
Compensation: This is a full-time position with pay commensurate with experience, education, and responsibility.
