Church Description *

Connection Point Church is established in the south Kansas City area for the purpose of pointing people to a connection with Jesus Christ, one another, and God’s purpose for their lives. Today, Connection Point is one of the largest churches in the Midwest. In 2013 and 2015, they were featured in the Outreach Magazine list of the “Top 100 Fastest Growing Churches in America”. The average weekly worship attendance here is over 2000 (compared to 1,500 in 2012).

Connection Point Church values spiritual growth and is passionate about being a church of disciples who make other disciples. They also invest heavily in outreach to their community. Among other things, they are known for the “Hope Network” through which, each year, they invest hundreds of thousands of dollars back into their community in goods and services that include food, clothing, job training, addiction recovery, etc. They recently opened their own medical clinic with a complete medical staff that supports those who aren’t able to afford healthcare services. They’re also known for their Recreation Outreach Center. The fitness center has more than 2000 members, about 80% of which are not members or affiliated with any church. This presents a prime outreach opportunity.

Position Description *
The worship ministry at Connection Point Church has been a significant draw for the church. In the past, the church has had multiple services on Sunday mornings featuring varying styles of music. Recently, the church combined those services to find their unique “one voice” connecting people to the Father in worship. This is not about a specific style, but about finding a sound that is multicultural and multigenerational unifying their growing, diverse congregation. This new format features a band with vocals, while also incorporating choir and orchestra. The new Worship Pastor should have a vision for blending contemporary, band-driven worship music with a modern worship choir and orchestra.

Connection Point would like to see multiple worship leaders engaging the congregation. The Worship Pastor should have a desire not only to lead worship, but to shepherd and empower others to lead as well. Not simply a musician, this person should have the heart of a pastor who is discipleship oriented with a heart to develop people and see them thrive. Strong organizational and administrative skill is required to oversee this large staff and expansive ministry. The Worship Pastor should be a high capacity leader with high emotional intelligence and maturity.
