Job Description:
Statesboro First United Methodist Church, located in Southeast Georgia, is currently seeking a Contemporary Worship Leader to work with our weekly contemporary worship service. We are excited to add this new staff position to join our staff team and our church family. Salary will be based on skills, qualifications, and experience. This will be a part time position.

Primary Responsibilities:
> Work with Assistant Pastor, Technical Director, and other worship team members to plan, create, and prepare for our weekly services
> Plan, organize, and lead weekly rehearsals for worship band
> Lead music on Sunday mornings at weekly contemporary service

Secondary Responsibilities:
> Develop & train current worship band members and future band members
> Work with Youth Minister in developing and working with our youth worship band

We have a committed team of staff and volunteers already in place working to create a relevant and dynamic environment in our contemporary worship service. We believe that a gifted worship leader, one who is passionate about God and leading others into His presence, is an essential element in this process. Our contemporary service, one of our three Sunday morning services, averages between 100-150 people each week with the majority of our congregation in the 30 to 50 age range. We are looking for someone with experience leading contemporary and blended worship and who plays at least one lead instrument (preferably guitar). Ideally we are seeking someone who can partner with the staff to lead this church into the future and help transform the lives of our members and the community. While our church is United Methodist we are not opposed to someone who does not have a United Methodist background to join our ministry team. We are open to discussing any specific concerns or questions with all applicants.

All those interested should contact: Kirk Hagan at
We would like to have applicants submit a resume and link to some samples of you leading worship (no phone calls please). If you prefer to mail a DVD sample we will supply you with a mailing address. We are seeking to fill the position as soon as possible with a tentative goal of May/June as our starting time. Please do not apply unless you are prepared to relocate.
