The music minister’s responsibilities will include the promotion and leading of three weekly services, consisting of a mix of traditional contemporary song selections with the support of a pianist, organist, and members of our adult choir. This person will work with the children’s and adult choir members to enlist, encourage, and promote our services with a special Easter and Christmas song service presented each year. Assistance with church events (weddings, memorial services, and funerals) will be expected along with assistance with service planning (special music) and community outreach with our senior pastor. The most important task of all is that the Music Minister first Love Jesus and His precious Word, love people and minister to them through music, seek to always present a Christ-like example, and support our Pastor in building up the Kingdom of God.
The Youth Minister’s responsibilities will include leading our Wednesday and Sunday night services and Bible study for our middle and high school students. Planning and delivery of a fun-filled quarterly Youth Fellowship event will be anticipated, along with budgeted food and fellowship either on the church campus or an approved location. Every effort should be made to make every student feel welcome and loved and play a significant part in the services and events. A winter and summer trip will be fund-raised, planned, communicated to parents, and facilitated for the students, and should prayerfully seek this to be a time of fun, fellowship, and spiritual growth for our students and chaperones. This candidate will be expected to look for ways to minister to youth in the community through school functions and activities, partnerships with surrounding churches and their church leaders, and fostering church growth via outreach opportunities with the Senior Pastor (i.e. hospital and home visitation).
