Minister of Contemporary Worship
Asbury United Methodist Church Minister of Contemporary Worship will have the responsibility for working with the Senior Pastor and other clergy in designing an innovative contemporary worship experience each Sunday in the Wilson Activity Center at 10:45 a.m. Duties for this opportunity include, but not limited to:
- Working with a gifted praise band and musicians who love creating a meaningful spiritual praise on a committed level. Rehearsals are currently held at 6:30 Thursday evenings, and a brief rehearsal on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. Arrival early on Thursdays is necessary to check set-up so rehearsal time is not used for this task.
- Working with the clergy to select songs relating to each week’s message and sending the list out to the singers/band who are in rotation for that week. Current interim staff is doing this two weeks in advance.
- Currently, the Minister of Music is uploading songs and setting screen backdrops for songs, and order of worship. These duties would fall to the Minister of Contemporary Worship.
- Creative design by the Minister of Contemporary Worship of stage, altar, screens, etc… would be a bonus in enhancing the overall worship experience and message.
Average attendance of the Celebration service is currently 125-140. Growth of this service should be a goal.
The ideal candidate will have experience in leading contemporary worship with a praise band, sound systems and multi-media; computer technology; experience and ability to grow a youth music program; and working with volunteers. This candidate must be a Christian who is spiritually creative and theologically grounded, organized, self-starting, outgoing and have the ability to communicate with a diverse team of staff, church members, guests and volunteers.
Salary is commensurate with education and experience.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter, resume, salary requirements and demo to Rev. Mary Hilliard, at email@example.com
