Worship Pastor (171711) - USA South (LA)

 

We are representing a new opportunity for a Worship Pastor at a missions-minded, family-focused, multigenerational, growing Southern Baptist Church with over 2.300 attending weekend services. With a well-established legacy of changed lives in Northeast Louisiana (NELA), First West is poised for an exciting future full of hope for serving Christ and expanding His Kingdom in NELA, NOLA, and the world.

 

With three campuses currently and plans for more, this church is embracing what it means to be one church in several locations. Worship at the original campus includes both conventional and contemporary services, while worship at other locations offer a contemporary service only.

 

The church seeks a Worship Pastor to provide leadership and management to Worship Ministry Teams and the people to whom they minister, providing them with the best opportunity to become fully developing followers of Christ.

 

Worship Strategy

Under the leadership of the Worship Pastor, the First West Worship Team is responsible for worship services and special worship events on all First West campuses.

 

On the West Monroe Campus, we offer two services to strategically engage a multi-generational audience - a Traditional Worship Service at 9:30 AM, and a Modern Worship Service at 11:00 AM.

 

Modern Worship Services at 9:00 AM and 10:30 AM are offered at other campuses, including Fairbanks and Calhoun.

 

More detail about worship strategy is available to you after an initial discussion with The Shepherd’s Staff.

 

Responsibilities

The Worship Pastor works closely with members and staff to support the vision of First West and its campuses in developing and leading an engaging multi-generational worship strategy for the Northeast Louisiana context. The search is for a person who has a passion for the church of Jesus Christ and for Christ-centered worship. The Worship Pastor will have direct responsibility and supervisory responsibility for:

 

  • Leading the worship team to develop and implement a comprehensive plan for engaging in modern and traditional worship services.

  • Serving as the primary platform leader in coordination with other members of the Worship Team

  • Directing the choir and orchestra on Sunday mornings

  • Leading and directing choir rehearsals to prepare members for upcoming worship services

  • Leading and directing rehearsals for orchestra and band

  • Encouraging the spiritual growth of choir and orchestra members: Pastoring, leading, and shepherding them to grow spiritually and musically

  • Meeting regularly with the Worship Team to prepare worship service details and review production notes

  • Serving as producer and collaborative leader of the Worship Ministry

  • Directing worship music selection and music library management

  • Directing special music events and productions

  • Leading the Worship Team to enlist, train, and multiply staff and volunteer leaders

Qualifications

The foremost requirement for this role is that of a Christ-centered life. The successful candidate will have a deep and ever-growing relationship with God as evidenced by daily habits of spending time with Him and His Word, observable fruit of the Spirit, active involvement in the leadership of the church, and a commitment to maintaining healthy accountability relationships with a small number of mature believers. A strong sense of calling will be evident.

 

In evaluating individuals for the position of Music Pastor, we will consider several key qualifications:

  • Godly character and a Christ-centered life

  • A clear calling to work with Choir and Orchestra in a collaborative Worship Team environment
