Cypress Community Church
Cypress Community Church is looking for a Worship Leader with a shepherd’s heart — who has both great talent and a great desire to build something extraordinary to make Cypress more compelling and current, to reach the many young professionals with families in the area
The mission at Cypress Community Church is to Worship Jesus, Love One Another, and Serve The World. It is a simple yet profound mission that, if fully embraced, will revolutionize life, community, and the world. That’s the belief and simple focus laid out by Lead Pastor Ben Sobels. Ben’s Aussie accent, relatable style, and compelling teaching have helped to make Cypress a welcoming place for those who are exploring the gospel of Jesus, and for those committed to following Him already.
Cypress draws from a wide swath of socio-economic backgrounds — from young professionals working on the Peninsula, to wine industry workers in the nearby Carmel Valley wineries, to young families in ‘old California’ Salinas, to the likes of successful Hollywood professionals who live in the San Benancio Canyon below the dramatic Cypress Community Church location on the hill.
Cypress is strategically positioned on the Monterey/Salinas highway, equidistant from suburban and agriculture-driven Salinas to the east, and the beautiful Monterey Peninsula on Santa Cruz Bay to the west. The Elders and Senior Leadership of Cypress are committed to impacting their community, region, and world through an aggressive ’40 Ways To Serve’ plan, ranging with opportunities from Mild to Extreme. This is a church committed to making an impact for Christ. And Cypress is known as a community who thrives on doing life together.
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 a shepherd’s heard. Cypress has relied mostly on part-time or volunteer talent to lead their worship experience, but now has reached the point where taking Cypress to the next level is critical — which requires a full-time, magnetic and gifted worship leader who builds teams. Cypress is looking for a team player, willing to pitch in where needed for the overall good of the church. There is freedom here to be creative, to build, and to do ministry with a great team in a great community.
