Job Description:


Who are we and what position are we looking for?

CrossWinds Church is a non-denominational church located in Northern California. We’re looking for a Music Director to join our dynamic team of creative people. The person filling this role would work on our Creative Arts Ministry Team and directly with our Creative Arts/Worship Pastor to help create a weekly service that points people towards Jesus. 


So, what would my job look like?

As the Music Director, your weekly responsibilities would include (but are not limited to):

  • Charting worship and performance music
  • Managing a large team of volunteer musicians and sound engineers - including scheduling, rotation, spiritual coaching and recruiting
  • Leading out weekly band rehearsal
  • Creating tracks in Ableton Live or something similar 
  • Maintenance and oversight of systems and equipment in the auditorium
  • Collaborate with creative arts ministry team in weekly brainstorming sessions
  • On stage presence with the band during our three Sunday morning services
  • Some shared worship leading if that is part of your calling


Tell me more about this creative team?

You would be working with a team of creative folks who work hard, laugh a lot and aren’t afraid of pushing the boundaries of what a church service should look like. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but put a high emphasis on excellence in everything we do.


I’m in! What experience/requirements do I need?

Obviously, you need to be proficient in at least one or more instruments— although we’re not picky on which one(s). We want to see your heart for Jesus and a strong desire to lead others towards Him. We want you to see the vision and values of our church and get on board in such a way that you take the ball and run with it. We won’t micro-manage you, so being a self motivator is highly important. The people in our church community are our first priority, so although you will be the Music Director, you must posses strong relational skills and the ability to build a team.
