Our church is seeking a male or female part time music director with 3-5 years experience preferred. Experience can be church, secular, or a combination of both.

Director will plan and lead both Sunday morning services with a blended genre of Christian music. In fact, our church is blessed by a diversity of Christian music genres. There are no regular expectations for Sunday or Wednesday evening service music; with the exception of an occasional special or holiday(s) service or guest preaching event.

Director will be expected to read music and be able to conduct an experienced choir, praise team, praise band rehearsals. Traditionally those rehearsals happen on Sunday or Wednesday evenings. Additionally, the Director will recruit and schedule the A/V teams, soloists, and pianist (which we are blessed with several).

We are currently in a 3 year partnership with a British Columbia church that is reaching Farsi speaking Persians with the Gospel.
