CrossPointe Christian Church
Chesterton, Indiana, United States
Date Posted: 05/15/2012
Categories: Worship Pastor - Youth Pastor
Church Size: 351 to 500
Job Type: Full-Time
First Christian Church is located in Chesterton, In (near Valparaiso), about 45 minutes SE of Chicago. We are an older church that has a unique opportunity to grow exponentially! The church hired a new Lead Pastor last year and is currently in a building program. The church owns 17 acres of property on the corner of two major highways and directly across from the new Porter County Hospital slated to open this fall.
In addition to our Lead Minister we also have a Director of Children and Students, a church secretary, and a part-time worship leader. We are looking for someone who can help take us to the next level. If you're an energetic person, a self-starter, and are awesome at leading worship, God could use you here!
Right now we're looking for someone to lead worship at both of our Sunday services. The first service is traditional with hymns and a piano. The second service is contemporary with drums, keys, guitars, and of course, vocals. While the hymn service will stay the same, we're looking to update our contemporary service with fresh, relevant, and current songs that can reach the 20-30 something’s! This job also requires helping lead our small middle and high school group on Sunday nights. We have volunteers who are willing to help, but we need someone to help plan events like CIY, Believe, and mission trips. Ability to play an instrument, creative video editing, print abilities, and a general willingness to jump in where needed give any candidate a leg up.
We have an eye towards excellence in everything we do at First Christian, so if you're an unstructured, free flowing type of personality, this probably isn't the place for you. We're not rigid, unwilling to change, or structured, we just believe in doing everything we do with excellence for Him and we give 100%! Whether it's our bulletin, our music, or the way we welcome people, we strive to do it with excellence.
If you're looking for a ministry to move closer to family, get away from the one you aren't enjoying, or are looking to move into preaching within a year or two then please don't apply. We are looking for someone who enjoys a challenge, is a self-starter, and not only wants to be in ministry, but be part of a church family. If that’s you - then this is the place for you!
