This is a great opportunity for a Creative Arts Director who can lead leaders to produce great worship services and take North Point Church to the next level in worship.
For twenty-seven years North Point Church has been reaching up, reaching out, and reaching into the town of Winthrop Harbor, Illinois and the surrounding community. “We’re a place for those who aren’t here yet,” says Senior Pastor Tim Bycroft. Tim has been on the team for over fifteen years, the last nine of those years as the Senior Pastor.
It’s this motto of reaching out that makes North Point the kind of place that steps up to meet the needs of the community. The outreach does not stop on Sunday. “Our community has continued to struggle economically speaking,” says Tim. North Point’s approach to meeting this need is multi-faceted through its Life Guard ministry which does financial counseling, homeless ministry, and Grief Share, among other things. This heartbeat of reaching out has led North Point to distribute over forty thousand pounds of food every month through its food pantry.
The Worship Arts Ministry is comprised of a modern four-to-six-piece band, and two to three singers. The style is progressive, modern and ever-changing. The new Creative Arts Director with join North Point is in a season of emerging leadership. “I’ve seen those on stage really step up over the last few months, especially being without a Worship Pastor,” says volunteer weekend service producer, Donna. Volunteer leaders over the band, vocals, and tech teams form the leadership of most weekends.
“Our challenge is that we just need the leader to bring this together,” says Tim. While the team collectively feels great about the new leadership and desires to do the ministry, they all know the lack of mentorship, leadership, and communication will keep them from moving to the next level in worship. North Point is seeking a Creative Arts Director that will not take over for the current team but will take them to new level of community.
