Creative Arts Director
|Lead Pastor, Darryn Scheske and his wife, Loree, moved to Indianapolis with the dream of planting a church that loves people well, leads them into a transforming relationship with Jesus, and launches them out to change their world. Pastor Darryn founded Heartland Church in his living room 16 years ago, desiring to reach people of all cultures and backgrounds, no matter where they are on their faith journey. That cultural and generational diversity continues to be the driving force behind Heartland’s growth and has set it apart from other area churches.
Today, Heartland hosts thousands each weekend in 4 locations across greater Indianapolis. Over 2,300 people have been baptized in water and nine new churches have been launched out from the Heartland.
Heartland’s main campus is situated on the north side of Indianapolis with 3 other locations in Fishers, Westfield and downtown Indianapolis. Indianapolis is the capital and largest city in Indiana. It is the 15th most populous city in the U.S, with an estimated population of 855,164 (census 2016). From the legendary Indy 500, to the Pacers and the Colts, Indianapolis offers ample opportunity for sports fans and also appeals to the musically minded as a regular stop for major concert events and touring shows.
|The Creative Arts Director will bring hands-on leadership and creative vision to the Worship, Production and Communication teams at Heartland Church. An eye for excellence, passion for detail and a heart to recruit and develop others is essential in this role. The Creative Arts Director will lead the Worship Director, Production Staff and Communications Coordinator to organize and implement weekend services and special events with high-level creativity and excellence.
Candidates for this position should have extensive experience in Worship Arts Leadership, preferably with multi-site broadcasting, mobile campuses and live video production. They should also have some level of professional oversight with audio and lighting design, stage design, Pro-Presenter and Planning Center. This position will have a large role in building, training and sustaining volunteer teams for weekend implementation so a passion for development is key.
The Creative Arts Director will also pour into the production team at a pastoral level, motivating volunteers and staff toward spiritual growth. The ideal candidate would emulate the culture of humility and dedicated work ethic already in place among the Heartland staff.
