Generations Church - Worship Director

Job description


This is an exciting time to partner with the Generations team! From 2016-2018, the worship ministry has undergone significant change and is primed for the right leader to step in. The on-stage quality of the musicianship of Generations has set the church up well for the next person to step in and develop a true culture of worship, where moments of spiritual impact and depth are created, capitalizing on opportunities for people to encounter Jesus in a tangible, authentic way.


Beyond a quality performance, the leadership team (and congregation as an extension) longs for a new season where "spirit-led" moments can occur within worship. While the team currently uses tracks and Ableton click and cues, the next Worship Director will have the gift of freedom to discern if a chorus should be sung again, or a Scripture shared during a transition that will help teach and embed the words of the worship song into people's hearts. The church believes authenticity, passion, and heart from those on stage will win over structure and perfection.


The Windsor Campus meets Sunday evenings at 6pm, and is led by a part time worship leader. The Worship Director will collaborate with and advise all (current and future) worship staff to ensure that a consistent culture of worship is developed and lived out across all campuses. There’s freedom and space for autonomy in style, teams, and songs across each campus. What is desired most is an authentic atmosphere where all are accepted and encouraged to find meaningful connection to Jesus.

Generations is, as you might gather from its name, a community where those of all ages and backgrounds gather together. Stylistically, there’s freedom to explore, and encouragement to consider a wide demographic when planning and executing worship sets.


​The weekly band setup at Generations Church is fairly standard: acoustic(s), electric(s), keys, bass, drums, with click and/or multi-tracks combined with vocalists who lead worship. Generations has a solid core of great musicians at each instrument, along with production team members who love to facilitate worship together. There is also a ton of potential to build strong teams and recruit/incorporate more people into a new culture of worship. With Northern Colorado University's incredible music program three miles down the road, the team is primed for growth.

The Worship Director will be supported well with a team of great collaborators. The Creative and Production team members are eager for a co-laborer who is ready and willing to contribute time, effort, and passion to work together in order to creatively communicate the life change of Jesus in meaningful ways each week.
