|Church or Org Description *|
|Spirit Church was birthed in 1924 following a miraculous revival. As an Assemblies of God church, this congregation has served the community of Bartlesville for over nine decades. In 2003, the church invited Darryl and Faith Wootton to serve as their Lead Pastors. Pastor Darryl was raised in the church but left as a teenager to pursue ministry opportunities in Missouri, Ohio, and Tulsa.
Since those simple beginnings almost 100 years ago the Lord has blessed the ministry of Spirit Church in every way to a growing community of 700. Believers and “Pre-Christians” alike gather each weekend in a brand new 48 acre campus outfitted with a modern 500 seat auditorium, outstanding children’s facilities, Cafe, and plenty of land to accommodate future growth and expansion. This new campus opened May 2018. Over the last 15 years, Spirit Church has tripled in size. Yet, even as this community continues to grow, the real story of Spirit Church is comprised of individual stories of lives who have been changed by the power of Jesus.
|Position Description *|
|Spirit Church’s previous Worship Pastor has recently transitioned out to engage in a new ministry opportunity. The culture of the worship ministry team is moderately healthy but needs a life-giving, invested, spiritual and musical leader who will build, train, develop and disciple worshippers. Spirit Church desires a leader who is passionate about team building and possesses a communication style that speaks life into people, bringing out the best in them. This team needs to be deepened and strengthen both in number and in community. This person will possess strong instrumental and vocal skills as well as a heart for God and active walk with Jesus. This person will lead with a sensitivity to the Spirit of God and awareness for “spiritual moments” and how to lead the congregation towards the Father in worship.
Their presence on stage and ability to engage the congregation in dynamic, joy-filled, Christ-exalting, Spirit-led worship with excellence will be a key component. Their leadership will influence the culture at Spirit Church which includes all aspects of worship programming and creative ministry. They will work very closely Pastor Darryl and Director of Production, Danny Wadsworth, in the growth and expansion of worship, creative and technical ministry opportunities.
