Clarkston Community Church (CCC) is on a mission to help people find God and grow in their relationship with Jesus. They do this through celebrating God, Connecting with Him and others, and helping people take steps towards contributing to God’s purposes in this world. This church of 500 (pre-covid) is known as a church that collaborates with other churches and businesses to serve the greater community. Although there is no direct denominational oversight, CCC is affiliated with the Church of God (Anderson, IN). The church has gone through several building programs over the years adding new square footage for students and kids ministry.
The church is located on the far north west side of the Detroit metro area in the community of Clarkston. The region is rich in lakes, boating, fishing, and all that makes Michigan a sought-after destination for families in the summer looking for a getaway. Clarkston has an incredibly quaint downtown with a serious foodie-game. Just a couple of exits away on interstate seventy-five is Auburn Hills and every chain under the sun with a large retail and mall area.
Sundays are led through a four-to-five-piece band with singers who do modern, and more classic choruses with an occasional hymn done in a modern style. The church has done some improvements in technology in the room and continues to grow in its online presentation.
“I would love to see us use this opportunity of a new hire to take some quantum leaps both in worship and nail down a strategy for our digital presence as well,” says Senior Pastor Greg Henneman. Greg has faithfully served CCC for 28 years.
The worship team is ready for leadership having gone through a couple of interim-type leaders over the last couple of years. Consistency week to week is a bit of an issue. While the volunteers have faithfully held it together, a new level of leadership is required to move the ministry forward. There is a great mix of players, singers and technicians who show up week to week to week to make it happen.
The Worship and Communication Pastor will have direct involvement of the week-to-week worship and production on the physical campus as well as oversight of communications and digital presence. The church knows this is a unique combination of gifts and abilities. While there is much to be inherited in the worship and arts, communications will be a ground-up build that must begin with a strategy that makes sense and is do-able
This is a “big job” that will require extra ordinary time management and knowing when and how to limit certain week to week efforts so the entirety of what is needed can be realized.
