Burke Community Church


Do you have a desire to be a part of a church focused on making a huge impact for the Kingdom? Do you long to use your music and ministry abilities to help create God-honoring worship experiences? Do you like to work hard, but enjoy having fun doing it? Do you want to invest your life pouring into some of the most amazing volunteers you’ll ever meet? Does the D.C. area sound like a place you’d like to live? If you answered “yes” to these questions, PLEASE keep reading about our position of Worship Associate for Burke Community Church in Fairfax County, VA (metro DC area).


Located just 12 miles outside of Washington, DC, Burke Community is a fast-growing, Bible-based non-denominational church of over 2,500 that has seen steady growth since 2009. We are now poised to take huge “next steps” in the years ahead as we expand our campus with a new Worship Center, offices, lobby, café, and more (to be completed in 2019). What’s missing is the right person to join our Worship Arts Ministry; an up-front personality and servant leader that has the ability to communicate vision, build teams, and pour into the lives of volunteers with a genuine heart for ministry.
