Job Posting: Worship Leader

Position Description

Job Status: Part Time (6-10 hrs/wk)

Lakeside Heights Baptist Church is a multi-generational and multi-ethnic church that seeks to glorify God in obedience to Jesus in being and making disciples of all nations. Just as the surrounding neighborhood has been undergoing a demographic change whereby young families have been moving in, we as a church have been transitioning to cherish the best of the classic hymns while also embracing the best of the new. We are thus seeking a spiritually mature worship leader that can flow with the leading of the spirit in both the old and new songs, leading the congregation not only in singing, but in entering fully into worship; from melody and lyrics to adoration and awe, from song to surrender.

  • Lead rehearsals/practices with Praise Team and/or choir as need and opportunity arise

 

Qualifications

  • A committed follower of Jesus with a desire to lead others into the heart of worship

  • Student and believer of God’s word, the bible, including marriage between a man and a woman. (See webpage for our statement of faith)

  • A degree in music would be ideal, but as a minimum: ability to read and play sheet music, play various styles of music, and experience with both older hymns and contemporary praise

  • Ability to lead other musicians and singers, as well as the congregation

  • Proficiency in English. French would be advantageous but not required

  • Audio/visual skills would be an asset.
