Founded in 1981 by Dr. George Sweet, Atlantic Shores Baptist Church grew from one family to a large church with an emphasis on outreach, discipleship, strong family values, and community. Today, this 34-year-old independent Baptist church occupies 8.72 acres at one of Virginia Beach’s busiest intersections. Atlantic Shores has over 1,000 people that call it their church home and has recently called only its fourth Lead Pastor in its 34-year history.


Atlantic Shores has a strong vision and track record for reaching the community and the world. The church has a long-standing reputation for large scale outreach events that have impacted the community for the better. Its history and this heart to make a difference in the community continue today. In 34 short years ASBC has seen God reveal His glory; from the building of the first worship center in 1985 with multiple services, to the creation of Atlantic Shores Christian School, to the ministries and facilities in existence today.


Quality, God-centered worship is a trademark of Atlantic Shores. Atlantic Shores is searching for a Worship Pastor who will help them build upon this tradition of excellence. Aimed at an intergenerational church family, Shores worship draws from a rich selection of songs, hymns and spiritual songs, some that you’ll recognize (modernized hymns) and many others that are new to the body of Christ. 


The position of Worship Pastor will be a life long learner, with a heart for worship, and a solid background in worship leadership. He will join the executive team at Atlantic Shores Baptist Church, with direct oversight of the Worship Ministry. They will have a strong ability to both lead, and perform, with a comparable pastoral spirit. He will be self-motivated, with a desire to seek constant improvement and excellence in all areas of responsibility. Their work ethic will speak to their preparation, musicianship, and highly effective execution of Sunday morning programming. The candidate will possess a vast knowledge in contemporary music, and blended worship, with familiarity in the fine arts and tech ministry areas.
