Job: Worship and Music Director

Christ Crossman UMC is looking for a faithful, energetic leader of Sunday worship celebrations that focus on God, help people of all ages grow in their understanding of the Gospel, and become better equipped for daily living as faithful disciples. The Worship and Music Director should have a passion for worshiping God and helping others worship through music. We believe Sunday worship should be welcoming and accessible to those in the community not already connected to a faith home.

Specific duties include but are not limited to:

  • Develop a vision and mission for an integrated church-wide music ministry that supports the overarching vision, mission, and goals of Christ Crossman UMC in concert with the Pastor, staff, and lay leaders.
  • As a member of the Worship Planning Team, plan regular and special worship services and select appropriate music that enhances the theological connection between music and sermon themes, often planning weeks and months ahead to allow for adequate preparation.
  • Organize, energize, lead, and direct the worship experience.
  • Coordinate and/or provide accompaniment during worship.
  • Oversee and lead audiovisual and tech team in order to produce the best possible atmosphere for worship environment (audio, computer graphics, lighting, video).
  • Plan, organize, lead, and direct 1-2 events annually, in coordination with other staff and lay leadership, as part of Christ Crossman’s community outreach (e.g., Christmas carol singalong held in conjunction with the live nativity).

The ideal candidate will have a vibrant and growing relationship with Jesus; knowledge of traditional and contemporary Christian music; experience leading, rehearsing, and conducting choirs and musicians; the ability to produce and direct special musical events and programs; and skill and ability in a wide range of musical styles. Membership in or previous work experience in the United Methodist Church is preferred.

This is a part-time, salaried position, generally requiring 10-12 hours per work including preparation, rehearsals, Sunday worship service, and other special events and services.
