New Albany Presbyterian Church seeks a full-time Director of Worship Music to oversee and lead our music ministry and worship services. We are located in New Albany, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus, one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country.

Our Mission:

New Albany Presbyterian Church exists to glorify God through lives changed by Jesus Christ.

Our Belief:

From the time that Jesus rose from the dead and his followers went out into the world to proclaim the greatest news of all-time, Christians have held to statements that summarize what they believe. God’s amazing love for his people despite human sinfulness compels Christians to continue to share this wonderful Gospel message. The earliest statement of faith was “Jesus is Lord.”

For more information on our beliefs, please refer to the EPC Essentials of Faith and the Westminster Confession of Faith.


NAPC is a growing family focused on sharing the love of God in Jesus Christ to all who have ears to hear. We are currently operating as a mobile church while we await the completion of our future home, currently under construction. It is an exciting time to join and be part of our transition into our permanent space! We hold two worship services each week, a Traditional and an Acoustic service. In addition, special services are occasionally held throughout the year to praise and glorify our amazing God. Our Traditional Worship service features our Sanctuary Choir, leading us in congregational worship from the hymnal. Our Acoustic Worship service involves guitar-led singing of contemporary worship songs and modern hymns. In both worship services, the Gospel is preached, and the Word of God is shared through the same Christ-centered sermon. You will find attire from casual to dressy at either worship service.
