Poulsbo Community Church - Worship Pastor

Job description


Poulsbo Community Church is a warm, friendly place made up of real people who genuinely love each other. Driven by a passion to see people open the Word of God and meet Jesus in its pages, Pastor Lincoln and his family planted the church to share God’s love with the people of Kitsap County.

What began with a few people meeting in a local movie theatre has grown to a vibrant church with services on a beautiful seven-acre campus in the heart of the community. Under Pastor Lincoln’s leadership, those attending PCC willingly give of their time, expertise, and resources toward the vision of helping people take next steps toward Christ. While the history is strong and the message has never wavered, ministry methods at PCC continue evolving to meet the ever-changing needs of the Olympic Peninsula.

Worship has played a key role at Poulsbo Community Church. Weekend services are joyful and welcoming with worship playing a key role in creating this environment. The planning and execution of its services is very intentional with a high standard of excellence. The church truly desires for people to experience a growing and deepening relationship with God through both personal and corporate worship.


Poulsbo Community Church is a well-respected church with a worship ministry that is poised and ready for strong leadership that will help take it to the next level. Former worship leadership has set the pace and teed up the next leader for ministry success. There is a consensus among staff and volunteers to see the church maintain loving and caring relationships and musical excellence while expanding its reach in creativity, shepherding, mentoring, and passionate worship.

While the congregation is currently embracing the interim leadership of rotating worship volunteers and leaders, there is a growing desire to find a Worship Pastor who can truly lead and develop the worship ministry into a growing and vibrant ministry of the church.

Building on the foundation of the past, the church is looking for a leader in worship who can partner with Pastor Lincoln and the existing staff to lead and shepherd the people of PCC well, and support the mission, and values of the church—a Worship Pastor who will creatively lead modern worship for the church, maintain strong biblical standards in life and ministry and operate with a heart for the ministry within the local church.
