Why I Love This Opportunity

Will Johnson

Associate

I love this opportunity because Keystone is entering a beautiful season of renewed vision and growth! Lead Pastors Mike and Nicole (and the entire staff) are incredible! They have brought a wealth of wisdom and experience to Keystone, where they lead a staff culture built around humility, collaboration, and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit. God is doing a new thing here, and the next Worship Pastor will be instrumental in chasing that vision together with the staff and congregation!

About This Organization

Keystone is a growing Wesleyan church with about 500 people attending each week. Their mission is to “love and lead people in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by creating a church that people love to attend, especially those new to church.” They are called to be a redeeming force in our community by saving lives, maturing disciples, and making disciple-makers.

Position Description

Keystone is seeking a champion of worship who will lead out of the overflow of a personal relationship with Jesus and time spent intimately in the presence of God. They desire a relational pastor who will care for a team spiritually and practically develop musicians.

The Worship Pastor leads a team committed to creating an atmosphere of excellence where Jesus is glorified through genuine and authentic expressions of worship. They are passionate about loving and leading people in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by designing creative, excellent, and Spirit-led worship experiences that engage them where they are and challenge them to take their next step closer to Him. The Worship Pastor is responsible for recruiting, developing, and pastoring a team of volunteers that will lead the church toward a passionate pursuit of the presence of God. Collaborating with the Lead Pastors, they leverage creativity and innovation, strive for excellence, and cultivate relevant and authentic worship services.

  • Create a clear process to onboard, develop, train, equip, oversee, and evaluate volunteer worship leaders, vocalists, musicians, and tech volunteers
  • Program gospel-centered, heaven-focussed yet missional worship elements that declare timeless truths of our Savior and call the congregation to deeper devotion

The Ideal Candidate:

Keystone is looking for a high-vision, people-loving, team-building leader who can partner with Lead Pastors Mike and Nicole to champion the new Holy Spirit-driven direction of Keystone from their public platform and relational influence as the Worship Pastor.
