Position Description

Worship Ministry Director

Hughson Street Baptist Church

Hamilton, Ontario, Canada


Position: part-time worship ministry director, 25hr/week, $24,000 annual salary


Hughson Street Baptist Church (HSBC) is a growing congregation of predominantly young families, anchored in the urban North End neighbourhood of Hamilton, Ontario. HSBC was established in 1887; it is a Fellowship Baptist Church in the reformed, complementarian tradition.


We are at an exciting point in our church history; as the city and our neighbourhood prepare for significant cultural and economic changes, we seek to be a leader in supporting our community in Jesus’ name. With a Sunday morning congregation of approximately 270 people, and a weekly ministry to more than 450 families and individuals, HSBC is seeking a worship ministry director who will join us part-time in 2018, with the potential of full-time employment in the future. We are praying God will use the worship ministry director to assist us in reaching the growing artistic community around us.




We are looking for someone who will encourage our longing to worship God in spirit and in truth. In order to fulfill this mandate, our worship ministry director will need to:


Prioritize a gospel-centered environment of worship, where people can experience the presence of God from the time they enter our building until the moment they leave
Give leadership to one of our praise teams as necessary (vocally and instrumentally), and relieve volunteer leaders when they are unable to serve due to illness or absence
Relay information regarding sermon topics from the teaching pastor to whoever is leading the praise team each Sunday
Work closely with the volunteer leaders in order to coordinate, recruit, evaluate, equip and support the praise teams and the sound and tech team
Manage day-to-day operations as discussed and developed with the church staff




Hughson Street Baptist Church needs a worship ministry director who:


Has a heart for God and a love of calling people into His presence
Is a big-picture thinker who can cast, communicate, implement and manage a vision for our worship ministry that aligns with the vision and doctrine of HSBC
Is familiar with multiple instruments, and is able to offer instruction to other musicians
Is a self-starter, good at multitasking and prioritizing projects
Thrives in a collaborative environment and values working as part of a team
Has strong relational skills, and is able to effectively communicate with a variety of audiences, including the congregation, pastoral staff, volunteers and church partners
Has the organizational ability to oversee multiple teams and eventually multiple services
Is a creative problem-solver, and able to work effectively with limited resources
Enjoys working at a fast pace within a variety of settings, and can do so with composure and flexibility
Is willing to shepherd the volunteers under their care, which includes having difficult but necessary conversations as needed


Additional Qualifications


Preference will be given to candidates who:


Are interested in long-term personal investment in the North End community
Desire to pursue a long future in worship ministry
Have formal music training
Have previous experience overseeing and equipping teams for Christian service
Are familiar with sound equipment and relevant technology



Please email your resume (including a brief account of your call to Christ and call to ministry), to Pastor Dwayne Cline at by Sunday, December 17th, 2017. Only candidates being interviewed for this position will be contacted.
