Position Description

Ellerslie Road Baptist Church, a multicultural, transgenerational church of 1,400 attenders in north central Alberta is searching for a full-time Director of Worship Arts/Contemporary Worship Leader to serve on our pastoral staff.

Ellerslie is a church with a rich heritage and a bright future. The church leadership is aligned in its vision to make disciples who love God, love people, and serve the world, “Bringing Jesus into Life” in southwest Edmonton and beyond. Since its founding 70 years ago, the church has grown from a small fellowship of believers to a “big steeple” church that is active in church planting and international and local cross-cultural mission, and is a leader in its denomination, the Baptist General Conference of Canada. The church conducts worship services in English and Mandarin, and houses a culturally Filipino service by a sister congregation.

Blessed with stable finances, Ellerslie now is planning for the next chapter in its history.

The Director of Worship Arts/Contemporary Worship Leader (DWA-C) will oversee all aspects of Worship Ministries, with a specific focus on providing visionary leadership to the Contemporary worship environment at Ellerslie. The DWA-C will recruit, equip, resource, and lead a team to create a caring and worshipping community that engages the “next generation” (especially young families, young adults and youth) in more “contemporary” expressions and styles of worship. The DWA-C will also oversee all Technical & Production components of all Worship Arts ministries, including one “traditional” service. Success in this position will require a passion for engaging musicians and other worship ministry volunteers, as well as an ability to work in a team context.

We are searching for a candidate with a Bachelor’s degree and some theological training who has demonstrated several years of development and oversight in local church ministry, either as a professional staff member or as a significant volunteer. The successful candidate must be able to direct the music component of our worship ministry as well as the supporting technical arts. Furthermore, this person will have a passion for setting high production standards in the church context. Experience in recruiting and resourcing volunteers is necessary.

For more information on this opportunity and its requirements, please forward your résumé and cover letter to The church will accept applications until a suitable candidate is found.
