Worship Arts Pastor

Sarasota,

Florida

Why We Love This Opportunity 

South Shore launched in 1994, and from day one they have always had a reputation for being a different style of church. Their mission is “together we help people find and follow Jesus Christ”. They are positioned as a local church with a heart for the community.

The church is currently running 550 in attendance on the weekends. As the church ran out of space, they started a building expansion project. This new endeavor will create a 65% seating capacity increase, along with other building additions to support the growth. The auditorium received an upgraded audio system and a new LED wall on the stage. As the church prepares to move back into the building, the people of South Shore are ready to advance the Kingdom of Heaven on earth even further in the Sarasota community this year.

Church or Org Description 

South Shore will always be a community-focused church, as they Love and Reach their surrounding neighborhood for Christ. The people of South Shore are consistently making a difference in the community working with public schools, distressed neighborhoods, pregnancy centers, and global missions endeavors. Throughout the journey, God has been faithful as they continue to seek to be faithful to Him. All ministries at South Shore go through the vision of helping people Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose, and Make a difference.

Two identical weekend services at SSCC last approximately sixty-five minutes, and are led through the modern use of a band with click tracks, loops, lighting, and stage designs that all drive the message series forward. A typical Sunday service consists of a standard genre of a modern worshiping church.

There is an expectation that people leave South Shore having had an experience that they take with them. Because the church is experiencing a fresh outpouring of God’s presence, South Shore is looking for a leader who can facilitate encounters with the Living God, where people leave with the hope of the gospel echoing within them!

Position Description 

God has put a great foundation in place at South Shore. The task at hand for the next worship pastor is to continue building on that foundation. More musicians and tech team members need to be recruited and developed to help support the continued growth God is bringing to South Shore. God is rapidly growing this church in both size and community impact. The right worship pastor needs to have the depth of heart, commitment to Christ and artistic skill to develop the arts ministry, while the church continues on this current upward trend at a rapid pace.

Many top-talent leaders dream of joining a like-minded group in ministry like those at South Shore. What God is putting together has the foundation for both a fruitful season of ministry and the opportunity to do life together on the journey. All the key ingredients are there for a Holy Spirit empowered season of ministry impact. Many years from now the leaders of South Shore Church will look back and see how God used a community of people to transform a city for His glory.
