Why We Love This Opportunity
Lead worship and people in one of the best places to live in America. Venture Christian is looking for their next worship pastor in Carmel, Indiana.
Both onsite and online, Venture Christian Church is making its mark in the Indianapolis area. God is using this dynamic church of 1,000 on the north side of Indianapolis to change lives today and for all eternity. Since its beginnings as Woodland Springs Christian Church in 1968, the congregation has focused on the Gospel, reaching people near and far for Christ, and multiplying dedicated disciples of all ages.
Venture Christian Church is an independent congregation that is part of the Restoration Movement of Churches (Christian Churches/Churches of Christ). Its governance model is staff-led with elder oversight. Stan Killebrew is beginning his second year as senior pastor.
The worship ministry is coming off a long run by a faithful worship pastor who has served for fifteen years. There is an established group of core volunteers that are very consistent. Approximately eighty volunteers make up the roster of those in production ministry and on platform. The playlist is modern. Venture Christian is a multi-generational church that has embraced change and moved beyond the trappings of what might keep other churches stuck.
Currently, there is a contracted employee that schedules all production volunteers as well as a contracted FOH engineer.
It’s about engaging a congregation and guests to engage with God both in-person and online.
Lead a team of creatives to stretch the boundaries and find new means of creativity moving forward.
EQUIPPING OTHER WORSHIP LEADERS
