Purpose: Lead a growing, God-honoring, and Gospel-rich ministry of worship with and for an intergenerational congregation who takes corporate worship seriously and who desires to see many come to faith in Christ.
Minimum Requirements: Baptized follower of Jesus; member of Barrington Baptist Church; humble servant-leader; fluent musical ability; effectively communicate and lead a biblical approach to corporate worship.
We are asking the Lord to call a humble servant-leader who puts Jesus first in his/her life, loves and works well with those he/she serves, and has the skill to:
- Embrace, lead, and encourage a model of worship that fulfills our Exalting Worship (p 2) vision.
- Plan Sunday’s orders of service in collaboration with the Senior Pastor, including vetting lyrics for soundness and relevance to corporate worship.
- Coordinate and lead rehearsals for all worship services.
- Recruit, resource, equip, and empower volunteers for the worship ministry in keeping with our three strategic values (Intentionally Intergenerational, Service Minded, and Bold with the Gospel). While you are “in charge,” you are not expected to do all of the ministry; instead, enable others to do it, too.
- Develop and execute an on-boarding process for new musicians and vocalists for the purpose of expanding the team and engaging more people in the ministry.
- Ensure that the ministry is protected and enriched by following proper safety protocol, praying for volunteers, handling conflict biblically, and selecting content saturated with God’s grace and truth.
- Facilitate or lead two seasonal choirs for Easter and Christmas annually. Choir is not a weekly ministry.
- Work with, or delegate a member of your team to work with, the Tech Team leader to ensure the Tech Team has what it needs to properly support your team’s efforts for all worship services.
- Plan/coordinate/attend at least one team-based or leader-focused worship training event biennially.
Accountability: The Worship Ministry Director will work closely with, and report to, the Senior Pastor. The Director will receive a minimum of one performance review annually, in addition to ongoing/informal feedback.
Work Week: The work week shall consist of an average of 15 hours. The Worship Ministry Director will be expected to attend and/or participate in the Sunday worship service and the weekly Staff Meeting, in addition to the activities specific to this role.
Benefits: Given the part time status of this role, it is not currently eligible to receive benefits, except those required by law.
Opportunity: There may be opportunity to increase hours in line with the health of the ministry and the size of the church.
