Job Description:

Aldersgate United Methodist Church

Who Are We?  Aldersgate United Methodist Church is a moderately sized church in the City of Midland, Michigan, a roughly 42,000 population community incorporating the headquarters of the DowDuPont Chemical Company.  Our church has been nestled in a quiet middle class residential community for a little over 50 years.  The congregation is comprised of a generationally diverse group of congregants who are open minded, exhibit a seemingly inexhaustible spirit of volunteerism, enjoy a strong sense of family (church as well as traditional), and looking to spread the word of God in challenging times.  We believe that a message rooted in the Bible can change the world and that mission is an individual responsibility for every congregant to make Jesus known and transform the world around us.

We Need a Director of Worship Arts   Our traditional service preceded our contemporary service, but continues to be well attended and supported while the contemporary service is evolving from what was once, and primarily has been, a lay and non-professional musical message focused program.  Our Sunday worship growth will be enhanced by a trained and professional worship leader that brings art, training, new ideas, and a “can do” attitude to further bring out a passion for Christ in our congregants and empower those with inherent gifts to share with others.  Music, presented in a seamless, professional manner tends to bring out inner feelings, speaks when words do not, brings people together, and passionately praises our Lord and Savior.  Our worship team needs to advance into a more professional implementation of worship as an art.

Who Will Fit Best to Our Needs?  We need a person whose personality demonstrates a love of Jesus with faith, attitude and behavior evidencing a strong Biblical foundation.  Someone must be a servant leader who embodies the wisdom to lead strongly and effectively while carefully using interpersonal relationship skills to mentor and nurture a generationally diverse congregation.  A candidate must have the vision and ability to use music and audio/visual arts to transform our worship.

Preferred Qualifications?

  • 4-year bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution in music, performance or other related field that has equipped the candidate for vocational ministry with 2-years’ experience in Worship leadership.  A different combination of equivalent education and experience will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • Proven experience and maturity in musicianship complemented with cultural relevancy when leading congregation in worship for contemporary and traditional services
  • Competence in software and hardware related to music and visual arts presentation and communications
  • ·       Other duties apply and a detailed position description is available upon request


Salary commensurate with education & experience, and includes insurance & benefit package
