Worship Director

Sioux City, Iowa
Church Description *
Sunnybrook is a church of 2500 in Sioux City, Iowa. It is the prevailing church in the area and is advancing the Gospel. It’s simple, and clear, mission is to SEEK those who don’t know of Jesus, GROW those who do, and SEND all those who are willing into their world.

The church is a vibrant place. It is full of children running the halls, and young families. It recently opened a new auditorium, which is already full! Sunnybrook means a lot to the region and is known as a generous church that is engaged in all facets of the community.

Sunnybrook has been led for the past thirteen years by Senior Pastor Jeff Moes. The staff culture is healthy, unified, and there is a sense of forward momentum in the Body.

The worship style is vibrant, alive and growing. A normal weekend is thoroughly modern, with a bit of edge, and is led by a full band. “We desire to continue to grow in our ability to put God in perspective so that people are more free in their worship,” says Laurie Van Cura, Creative Arts Pastor. “We don’t anticipate a change in style, but a desire for greater engagement.”

The new auditorium has a full compliment of intelligent lighting and environmental projection. The team does a great job using these tools for a submersive worshipful experience. There are approximately eighty people engaged in the worship ministry along with the technical production teams. There are two full time staff members in the tech ministry and other part time worship leaders on the team.

Laurie serves the executive team as the Creative Arts Pastor. This new role will work in conjunction with her to ensure healthy growth and seamless planning.

Position Description *
The church is seeking someone who can further the worship culture in the church and create pipelines of future leaders for all ages.

It is a “given” that the next worship leader must be a next level leader of leaders. “We’re no longer a church of 700 held together by ‘family,’” says Laurie. “Our next leader will need to be a self-feeder, spiritually mature, an equipper of others.” The actual “job” is one of vision casting, leading, building teams, and equipping others.

The church is poised to take significant steps forward in terms of venues as well as a potential multi-site strategy.

1. Musicianship. A strong vocal presence to command the stage and musical skill to lead the band will be paramount to this role.

2. Communicator. This person has to be able to pastor the moment, talk between songs, do transitions well – they’ll need to have a sense for the whole morning and not just “their 3 songs.”

“We really are looking for someone who can command the stage and connect with our congregation to lead us forward in engagement,” says Jeff Moes, Senior Pastor. “The music and worship here is great, but we are ready to go to the next level.”

The next level is within reach. The next worship pastor is set up for the win.
