    Why We Love This Opportunity

    Liberty has an unparalleled opportunity to have a Kingdom impact in one of the fastest-growing cities in Alabama and one of the best places in America to raise a family. To become the best church for their community, they have undergone a recent re-visioning process with Auxano. Through this, they have clarified their mission as a church to be “Gladly spending our lives to see the Gospel transform the next generation,” mirroring 2 Corinthians 12:15. The new Discover Pastor will have a “clean slate” to determine what musical worship should look, sound, and feel like at Liberty. This is an excellent opportunity to be creative, effect change and build, and do ministry with an exceptional team in a fantastic community.

    About This Organization

    Liberty Baptist Church has a rich history reaching back 175 years. While respectful of their past, they are poised for tremendous impact as they retool to be the church needed for the future. Their city is the second-fastest-growing city in Alabama, with 47% growth over the last ten years. Young families flock here for the relatively low cost of living and excellent school system.

    Liberty plans to launch a second campus in 2024, with another in 2027. Each campus will have live teaching and unique staff, but Liberty’s DNA. Since COVID, the church is seeing close to 600 people gather on campus each weekend, which continues to grow. The church currently operates in two distinct styles of musical worship but believes God has called them to move forward to one style: Contemporary, meaning current. This unified style will incorporate mainstream, modern worship songs (Elevation, Passion, etc.) and contemporary hymn arrangements. On the platform, they prefer to lean toward smaller, expressive teams that reflect the multi-generational nature of their congregation but primarily lean toward the growing younger demographic in their community.

    Position Description

    Liberty recognizes that hiring the right person as their Discover Pastor is crucial to reaching their community. Musically, the new hire should have strong platform skill and vocal ability, lead with confidence, and be comfortable working with both instrumentalists and vocalists. While this person doesn’t need to play an instrument, the ability to play and lead from an instrument would be a plus. The Discover Pastor will oversee all worship and production teams while also giving insight into Student Worship and Kids’ Worship in the future. The person will also supervise the existing worship and production staff.

    A passionate leader is needed that places “warmth over wow.” Excellent musicianship is good, but not at the expense of spiritual maturity and substance. The Discover Pastor should be a strategic thinker, have a good read on current worship trends and technology, and inspire people toward a fresh vision. As they move toward a multisite model, Liberty is looking for a person who loves developing others and empowering them to lead. Leading people to embrace a culture of change is necessary as this dynamic church moves into the future.
