Worship Pastor



This is a great opportunity for a worship leader who desires to be a ministry builder in a local church. Bring your desires to lead the church, your best musical talents, your heart for the lost, and join this team in Chicagoland.

Church Description *

Lakeland Church was planted in 1979 in the northern Chicago suburb of Gurnee, IL. Lakeland has grown steadily over the years and today averages approximately 600 during weekend services. The church has a long history of calling people to a deep experience of Christ. At the same time, leadership has experienced a profound conviction over the last few years to orient the church towards outreach and has purchased twenty acres for future expansion. ” The church has been re-tooling the vision, and over the past twelve months has seen an increase of conversion rate across the ministry.

“I think what I love most about being here is the people that I get to do this with,” says Senior Pastor Dan Weyerhaeuser. “We will continue to change our methods, and we’ll continue to tweak vision and strategy, but the people are what make this place a great place to be.”

The church is taking dramatic steps and undergoing change as we move towards an aligned staff team who are developers of leaders rather than direct ministers, a team who minister together out of a great chemistry and compatibility.


Position Description *

“We’re looking for more than just someone who is focused on their stage craft,” says Dan, “A pastor-shepherd for our team and congregation is a must.” The worship ministry has undergone a season of change, and these changes need to take root. While the foundation has been laid, there is a deeper sense of identity which is needed on the team. Taking the next steps forward in building out the ministry is a must. “We’re going to prioritize their ability to lead musically and grow and develop our team.,” says Dan, “but having a Pastoral Leader in worship is a must.” The team needs a new level of internal communication, vision casting, and steps forward within the larger emerging vision for Lakeland.
