At Newhope there is an obvious desire to settle for nothing less than authentic, theologically sound and Christ-honoring teaching and worship while making a missional impact on the community and the world. Creativity and innovation are abundant and a culture of refreshing, out-of-the-box thinking prevails at Newhope. Not only are they a team of quality staff, but they’re also loved, challenged, and shepherded by gifted and invested leaders, Dr. Benji and Amy Lynn Kelley. At Newhope, excitement and professionalism are reflected in a healthy multi-generational community. Current average weekly attendance is 4,500 on eight campuses and with more campuses launching in the near future.
Worship Leaders don’t lead songs, they lead people. At Newhope, worship is more than the music before a sermon. Worship happens beyond the walls of the church, every day. The responsibility of the Columbia Worship Leader is to lead the attenders and others to live their lives like the lyrics of a song, continually praising God for His love and goodness. Newhope is seeking a passionate Jesus-follower who will lead and create an engaging and excellent worship environment and experiences at Newhope Church. The Worship Leader is responsible for recruiting, developing, training, encouraging and motivating both volunteer and lay leaders for the Columbia Campus worship arts teams.
Musical and vocal excellence with high production value is key in this role. The right leader is a multi-tasking team player with high energy, strong interpersonal skills, a strong ability to develop leaders, and a positive attitude. Newhope’s worship is lively and diverse. During a gathering you’ll experience high-energy leadership and engaging music in the style of Hillsong Young & Free, Elevation, and Passion, and Jesus Culture, as well as an occasional secular song that may tie into the message. They are determined to live in a healthy tension between relevance and reverence.
