Highland UMC is an inviting family of faith, seeking to love, serve, and share Christ with our community in Raleigh, NC, and with the world. Engaging and equipping the church for worship and ministry is a top priority. We value excellence in worship leadership and are seeking to create an experience that meaningfully connects people to God. At this time, we are looking for a Contemporary Worship Leader with enthusiasm and skills to lead worship through music at our weekly worship service, The Connection.
We’re looking for a worship leader who can model joyful worship, lead a talented group of musicians, and oversee the preparation and equipping of the group. Music selection, running rehearsals, teaching new songs, and scheduling musicians is all part of the work, but we especially value having a leader with a heart for worship and engaging others in a spirit of worship. Strong candidates will demonstrate leading both vocally and instrumentally, either from guitar or keyboard.
A full job description can be found at the link below. The position is salaried with an expectation of 10 – 12 hours/week. Interested candidates should submit a résumé (.pdf) to Rev. Janet Baucom at firstname.lastname@example.org. A link to video footage of performance or worship leadership is strongly encouraged.
