Worship Minister

Fort Worth,

Texas

Church or Org Description
Heritage Church of Christ in Fort Worth, Texas has a history of making bold decisions to reach more people for Christ. The church went through a name change and major relocation to its current property two decades ago. They are seeking a Worship Minister to help them move their mission forward to Lead People into a Thriving Relationship with Jesus Christ. They seek to connect people to God, One Another, and to Purpose.

“Our weekend services are the primary place where we connect with God together on a regular basis,” says Senior Minister, Brock Paulk. “This hire is critical for our next step as a church.” Brock became the Senior Minister in 2014 after 7+ years as the church’s Student Minister.

Heritage has historically been associated with the non-instrumental Churches of Christ within the Restoration Movement. So, the 2013 decision to add an instrumental service was a bold one, and it was not taken lightly, but it was made for the sake of mission. “We decided we needed to be more strategic in reaching lost people,” says Jim Hackney, Executive Minister, “it wasn’t a music decision as much as it was an evangelistic one.”

Position Description
“We believe the worship ministry is primed and in position to become experiential and spiritually formative,” says Brock. The ministry is led by a vocal team of 6 to 8 in the first service, and a 7-piece band along with vocalists in the second service. The church wants to see both services be expressive, engaging, and to move forward.

Most churches that are doing multiple styles of services consider one service a “traditional” service, but to think of Heritage’s first service this way would be incomplete. It is acapella. The second service is instrumental (or “I.M.” as the team commonly refers to it). Both services are dynamic. There is a good rotation and players, singers, and tech team members.

NEXT
There is much equipping and process-building to be done in the organization of the ministries. The next candidate would do well if they considered themselves a ‘builder.’ What’s on the platform is good, but the process of getting there week after week needs help and forming.

Perhaps you fit this role if you:
– Are a Monday – Saturday worshipper
– Growing in Christ
– Love modern worship
– Can oversee a large team
– Want to be friends with those you work with
