Job Type: Part-Time

Job Description:
We are looking for an individual who first and foremost displays an authentic desire to love and serve God and people. This person must be passionate about leading others into a dynamic worship experience. He/she will see worship as ministry to the Lord, not performance in front of people. We define “contemporary” worship in terms of instrumentation, not just song selection. We are looking for a leader skilled enough to create a variety of worship styles, including electric guitar driven, piano/strings led, or even an unplugged acoustic sound with some percussion. We value lost people and seek a worship leader who is able to nurture seekers toward faith. We value community and expect our worship leader to create an environment where people and relationships are valued. We value excellence and expect musical and vocal competence. We value creativity and are looking for a leader that is innovative and works hard to keep the congregation asking, “What’s next?!”

The qualifications:

• 3-5 years experience leading worship in a structured church setting
• Ability to lead worship from a guitar or piano; preferably both
• Ability to read and write music notation and chord charts
• Experience in recruiting, training, scheduling and leading multiple worship teams
• Proven ability in engaging the congregation in authentic, passionate worship
• Strong vocal skills
• Good communication, relational and organizational skills
• Competency with all current worship media technology
• Must have a servant’s heart and be a strong team player
• Must be flexible and able to respond positively to change or inconvenience
• Strong stage presence

The church:

Central is located in the beautiful city of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, often voted one of the top 10 most desirable cities in America in which to live. Each weekend we serve around 900 worshippers, many of whom have not yet committed their lives to Christ. We are a growing community consisting of both a traditional service (200 attenders) and a contemporary service(700 attenders), although we will soon be starting a second contemporary service.
