Position Description *
Bethany is a multi-generational church with a strong legacy of musical excellence. The new Minister of Music & Praise should have a vision for blending contemporary, band-driven worship music with a modern worship choir and supplemental orchestra. Not only a worship leader themselves, this person should desire to shepherd and empower others to lead from the front as well. Bethany values worship that is engaging with an intentional flow that encourages congregational singing. The new hire should understand how to craft a multi-generational worship experience that draws worshipers into the moment. True to their love of God’s Word, theological depth in music selection is highly valued. They desire to sing great songs that communicate the gospel and teach the truth about God and His character. The qualified candidate must have the theological depth to lead and teach the church in this way.

Of high importance for the new Minister of Music & Praise will be the ability to connect with people, both, on and off the platform. This person should be authentic and relational with their teams and with those in the congregation. Not simply a musician, this person should have a love for people and the heart of a pastor.
