A large vibrant growing Church, strongly grounded on God’s word, passionate for Jesus, and open to the working of the Holy Spirit is seeking to take their worship experience to a new level!
Berwick Church of Christ has a unique and exciting opportunity working with the leadership team to develop our worship style and create a new sound that aligns with our refreshed purpose, vision and mission!
Imagine using your pastoral, worship and leadership gifts in a team led church where over 1,000 people consider this their spiritual home and we minister to over 600 each weekend, with strategies to begin new churches.
As a church we are 150 years old, and have been at our current site for over 27 years. We were founded as a result of an evangelist traveling through Berwick in 1869, and have continued to build on the foundations of the faithful servants that have gone before us. We continue to carry the heart to share the gospel, and our purpose "Being His presence in every place."
We’re strategically located in one of the fastest growing corridors of Australia, located in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne with an amazing opportunity to impact our ever growing community. As leaders we all share a desire to see revival sweep throughout Berwick, the city of Casey, Melbourne and beyond. And it seems that the world is coming to us as people from all nationalities and religious backgrounds are moving to the area every week. So the possibilities are endless.
We are seeking to fill an opening for a Worship Pastor. The successful applicant will give leadership to our Worship Ministry and the worship component of our services as well as worship in other ministries in line with your experience and gifting. You will report directly to the Senior Pastor who will provide oversight and leadership to the ministry forum which comprises all employed pastoral staff.
You’ll provide direct leadership, training, and oversight of our volunteer worship ministry team, including but not limited to:
- Keeping alignment between the worship ministry team and the purpose, vision and mission of the church
- Oversee the worship in services, ministries and special events
- Pastorally Care for the worship team members
- Mentor, develop and raise up worship leaders in praise and worship
- Teach the church in the areas of praise and worship
- Provide theologically sound and contemporary praise and worship song selection
- Provide leadership in new songwriting and production
- Oversee processes for recruiting, training and rostering teams of volunteer singers & musicians.
- Oversee rehearsals and attend all relevant staff and planning meetings
The role is part time, up to a maximum of 4 days a week depending on the successful candidate’s qualifications and experience, with a level of flexibility required in regards to work locations to enable us to meet the needs of our church ministries.
Experience in ministry is essential, proven leadership and a demonstrated ability to lead within a team structure is a must. Formal education in ministry is not necessary but considered an advantage. An ability to lead vocally in worship is required for this position.
Experience leading Young Adult Ministry is also desirable but not essential. For the right candidate consideration would be given to an expansion of this role to cover both ministry areas, with appropriate time allocation for both ministries.
Teamwork, trust and a “whatever it takes” attitude is what the pastors and staff at Berwick Church of Christ is known for.
