2|42 Community Church

Worship Pastor



Why I Love This Opportunity

Will Johnson


I love this opportunity because 2|42 is entering a beautiful season of growth, revitalized vision, and deeper connection with Jesus and the community! Lead Pastor Tony Johnson is bringing a renewed emphasis on authentic worship, caring for the entire family, and genuine life-on-life discipleship. 2|42 desires that people are known by God and their community and given purpose, which shows in how they lead and live out ministry. God is doing a wonderful new thing at 2|42, and the next Worship Pastor will be instrumental in carrying that vision together with the staff and congregation!

About This Organization

2|42 Community Church is a multi-site church with 7 locations in mid and southeast Michigan, with Brighton being the central location. Brighton is a beautiful mid-sized city located between Ann Arbor and Lansing. In a highly collaborative approach to multi-site ministry, the seven campus worship pastors design every weekend service together under the direction of the central Weekend Creative Director and Weekend Lead. Jesus is stirring a new and beautiful vision at 2|42 centered around families and discipleship, and the goal of the weekend service is to give people a glimpse of His glory and His direction to help them say yes to their next bold step in their relationship with Jesus and His community.
