  • Be a hardworking, servant-leader who is committed to excellence personally and in others – overseeing and developing the vocal & instrumental teams, recruiting new people to the ministry and shepherding the faithful ones.

  • Enjoy working with our Lead Pastor and Worship Ministry Leadership Team to plan and create weekly services and special services (e.g. Easter and Good Friday, Christmas, and Ministry Year Kick-off celebrations) that incorporate a variety of creative elements to foster and enhance worship.
  • Lead worship regularly on Sunday mornings and weekly mid-week rehearsals
  • Be committed to Grace Community – it’s mission, values & people
