  • Ensure the timely and accurate submission of all necessary statistics and reports associated with public worship (e.g., CCLI reporting).
  • Steward wisely the equipment and financial resources entrusted to the worship ministries of the church.


  • Saving relationship with Jesus Christ evidenced by the fruits of the Spirit
  • Personal integrity above reproach, a life-long learner, self-motivated, goal-oriented, team player, flexible
  • A working knowledge of both contemporary and traditional worship music
  • Affirmed musical giftedness with competency in leading corporate worship music both vocally and instrumentally (i.e., piano, guitar)
