Production Director

Pinelake Church

Job Description

Do you live to recruit and equip volunteers for video, audio, lighting, and other worship production roles? Are you passionate about leading production teams to the highest standards of excellence, but just as important, shepherding them to have a deeper walk with Christ? Are you comfortable with throwing Planning Center out the window and leading your teams in the moment when The Spirit is moving, and we are following the Senior Pastor or worship leader “off script?” Are you experienced and highly skilled in video, audio, staging, or lighting, but prefer to invest in leading others instead of being tied to a piece of gear yourself? If this describes you, then we want to talk to you!

The Production Director at Pinelake Church’s Reservoir Campus is responsible for recruiting, equipping, spiritually shepherding, and providing overall leadership to the production teams (producers, audio, lighting, video, stagehands) for two worship venues at the Reservoir Campus.

We'll connect quickly if you:
- Love to recruit, equip, lead and spiritually shepherd a servant leader team;
- Have experience leading as the key production director for a church of 750 or more (even better if it's in a multi-site context);
- Possess a unique drive and commitment to excellence, yet have the heart of a pastor; and,
- Creatively engage FOH (Front of House) audio, lighting, service production, and live video production;

You'll thrive with us if you:
- Thrive in high-energy, fast-paced, creative environments;
- Value a high attention to detail and production value;
- Find more joy in coaching rather than doing;
- Value collaboration across several departments; and,
- Always look for ways to grow and excel in your craft.

A few must-haves:
- A bachelor's degree or equivalent in a related field and three years of experience (or a combination of the two);
- Expertise in FOH audio and lighting systems is crucial;
- A "get it done, won't take no for an answer" personality;
- The heart and drive to build a robust and thriving servant-leader team; and,
- Excellent time management and organizational abilities.

The story of Pinelake Church began in February of 1971 in Brandon, Mississippi in a mobile chapel in a rural area near The Reservoir. By God's grace and power, our faith family has grown into a dynamic church spanning five cities throughout our state -- Clinton, Madison, Oxford, the Reservoir, and Starkville. Weekly, we serve over 12,000 people, but we celebrate stories of life change one person at a time.


About Pinelake Church

It’s hard to believe that what began in a mobile chapel located on Spillway Road in February of 1971 would grow to become the church that we experience today, where people from all over Mississippi join together in multiple locations for worship each Sunday.

Our journey has involved three Senior Pastors since the launch of the church, all providing timely and God-given leadership during their tenure. In January 1999 God brought Dr. Chip Henderson, Pinelake’s Senior Pastor, to lead the congregation. Shortly afterwards, God blessed our church with seasons of rapid growth and it was quickly apparent there would not be enough space at the Spillway Road location for what God intended to do.

A little over a year later, in February 2000 the leadership of the church was led to begin an aggressive search for a new location that would provide the necessary room to reach more people. In November 2000, the church met on land off of Lakeland Drive in Flowood, MS to dedicate the immense and beautiful 170 acres that God had provided as a new location.

By November 2003, the new facility was completed and the Pinelake congregation held its first services at the Reservoir campus. And while the new facilities were wonderful, it was the journey with God over the previous five years that would forever mark the people and remind them that church isn’t about buildings, but about God working in His people.

After three more years of rapid growth, in 2006, the Pinelake Elders and Senior Leadership Team felt God leading the church to expand through launching additional campuses in Mississippi. In the fall of 2006, the church launched the second Pinelake campus in the Madison area. In January of 2009, Pinelake launched its third campus in Clinton, Mississippi. In 2011, the fourth campus in the Starkville area launched. In 2015, the fifth Pinelake campus was launched in Oxford. Today, more than 11,000 people attend weekly worship at one of Pinelake's five campuses.

We believe Pinelake is a movement of God, and we have yet to see the end of God’s action plan for our church. Pinelake remains a church committed to seeing Mississippi changed one Life Change Story at a time. Our mission is to help people Learn from Christ, Live in Christ and Lead others to Christ.
