|Church Description *|
|Almost six years ago, Fondren Church was planted as a non-denominational congregation in a historic, yet vibrant part of Jackson, MS that has seen an urban revival in recent years. Located in the “arts district” of the city, the church has quickly grown to around 800 attenders and moved into a beautiful, historic church facility that has been updated and modernized to meet the needs of the growing congregation. Now beautiful stained glass windows mixed with sleek modern furnishings and design create a truly interesting space.
Senior Pastor Robert Green founded Fondren Church and has led the congregation to be Gospel-centric, with a high value placed on community and relationships. This value is never more evident than among staff who place “names and stories” over “numbers and programs”. Young families seem to embrace this as the large majority of people who attend Fondren Church are 29-35 years old with young kids. This church wants to be a welcoming people who embrace one another with the hospitality of Christ and to be a community that involves believers knowing, loving, and supporting one another in their pursuit of Christ.
|Position Description *|
|Fondren Church hosts two worship services each weekend at 9:30 and 11:00am. The first is held in their gym facility and the other in the sanctuary. Both are identical in programming and utilize electric guitars, acoustic guitar, bass drums, and keys. Vocals are worship leader driven with the occasional harmonies by one or more of the rhythm players. In-ear monitors are used in both venues which allows the use of click and live assist tracks.
The new Worship Pastor must be a skilled musician, able to connect with people on and off the platform, and should be highly relational with the heart of a pastor. He/she should be an astute leader, recruiter and developer of others, able to build strong teams. Great potential exists to tap into the “arts scene” in the Fondren area reaching musicians and artists with the Gospel. Finally, the new hire must have strong chemistry with the rest of the staff. He/she must be a team player willing to pitch in where needed for the overall good of the team. There is freedom here to be creative, to build, and to do ministry with a great team in a great community.
