Why We Love This Opportunity
New City Church loves Kansas City! They work hard to show that love in the way they minister to people. Known as being a church that seeks to make the community better, they have accomplished this through partnering with schools, engaging in community events, and encouraging the congregation to bring Kingdom (justice, integrity, and prosperity) wherever they are. New City is looking for a Jesus-loving, joyous person who is ready to lead and help them plant a “New City in Every City in Kansas City.”
New City Church was planted in January of 2012 by their Lead Pastor, his wife, and a team of faithful men and women. They are a Spirit-filled, disciple-making, church-planting church that is healthy and intent on remaining that way. As they approach their 10th anniversary, they are growing in their understanding of who they are as a multiplying church. New City has the vision to plant “A New City in Every City in Kansas City.” Now, with four locations across the Kansas City area, they are well on their way to seeing this vision fulfilled. Each campus has a unique heartbeat depending on its local community, but all work toward common goals and ideals.
Those who attend New City Church know it to be a place where people are loved and embraced. People are drawn to this church because it feels like Jesus is meeting real, broken people right where they are. Worship gatherings are modern in style, and are marked by a refreshing authenticity. Sermons are biblically based, conversational, and practical. Ultimately, New City Church wants to follow the biblical model of devoting themselves to one another and allowing that love to flow out into the community.
The Worship Arts Ministry at New City is healthy and they believe that this ministry will play a significant role in their growing and maturing as a church body. New City is a church that loves and wants to lift its hands in worship. They are praying for a ready and willing leader to come alongside them to guide them toward what God has in store related to worship at New City Church Shawnee. The church desires to see the worship culture be characterized by “joy.”
The new Worship Pastor will oversee all things related to the band, vocalists, production (AVL), and live streaming on the Shawnee campus. The successful candidate will be a trained musician who is relational and humble. This person should love developing others and empowering them to lead. The new Worship Pastor should exhibit authenticity and joy on and off the platform. Not simply a musician, this person should have the heart of a pastor and worshipper and should be a team player who is discipleship-oriented with a heart to develop people and see them thrive. Overall, the new Worship Pastor should lead with godly humility, having an observable love for the Lord.
