CHALLENGE & OPPORTUNITY
Calvary is seeking out a strong, visionary leader who has the ability to develop leaders, cast vision and develop strategies that will promote growth within the Worship department. The creative team is excited to head into the next chapter and eager to begin partnering with a new leader.
This leader needs to have a passion for God, the Gospel, and developing others. There are many talented musicians and worship leaders on the team, eager to follow a leader who is empowering and able to move them into this new, exciting season.
ENGAGING, AUTHENTIC WORSHIP LEADING
It's important for this Worship Pastor to be a strong Worship Leader. Of course, this has a lot to do with musical excellence and proficiency. But also important is the ability to pastor and move a room to engage. This moves beyond the musical into the skill of leading a large room.
Discipleship is a key role of this new leader. It's not enough to be a great worship leader, or to prepare music. Within the Worship Department, this role will be about developing leaders and fulfilling the vision of connecting people to God.
Loving people, pastoring people, leading people to operate in their gifting is essential. Doing ministry isn't enough. Empowering others to find their God-given potential is what it's all about. That's why this role is Pastoral - tight execution and productivity is valued, but Calvary needs a spiritual leader that embodies the vision and pastors their team.
This leader must be organized and have the ability to lead themselves and their department. It won't be micro-managed. They will be trusted to make equipment recommendations & proposals, manage the weekend experience, and lead their team with excellence.
