We are a “mac-centric” ministry, an understanding of pro presenter, and planning center online.
Someone who is comfortable with sound and video reinforcement. We run top of the line sound and a/v gear and need someone capable to use it, as well as train and or maintain our sound and a/v teams.
Someone who gives attention to detail and deadlines and can do so while maintaining a servant’s heart towards the pastor and an attitude of God honoring leadership to his teams.

Only resumes accompanied with a LINK TO A VIDEO of you leading worship. Video must represent you leading worship in a normal church service environment.
Must be evangelical, with a spouse that is also in doctrinal agreement with the church. Must believe in tithing. Must not embrace traditional Calvinism. This theological position would not be a good fit. We want thinking, intellectually capable and honest people.
However, we have a firm position against the theology of a “limited atonement” and “irresistible grace.” We certainly respect others who hold differing positions, we just do not want to complicate your life and ours by being on different pages theologically.
We do have quite a bit of latitude regarding other views. We have former Baptists, Nazarene, AOG, Methodists and Congregationalists on staff. We are, however, not looking for someone who embraces a progressive theological liberalism, i.e. no literal hell,
or believes in a second chance after death. We believe in an inspired and preserved Word. This is our final authority on all matters pertaining to faith and practice.
