Expectations and Evaluation

The Worship pastor will regularly attend Sunday morning worship services as well as priority events (baptism services, annual meeting, Christmas Eve, etc.).

This job does not carry with it the responsibility of serving as an elder; however, the elders will frequently ask for the worship pastor to attend part or all of the elder meetings depending on the agenda. This is to both help with communication and relationship building and also to gain the perspective of the worship pastor on key issues.
