Worship Pastor



Why I Love This Opportunity

Rocky Barra


God has done great things over 30+ years of ministry, and the best days of ministry fruitfulness are still ahead.

There is a great foundation of skilled team members in place representing many years of impacting ministry at Victory. This serves as a launching point for a dynamic future as people are coming back to church after COVID. There is a large vision for a great season ahead. Victory is getting ready for a major building renovation, and a sizable AVL upgrade in the auditorium which includes a large LED Wall.

The church is located between Tampa and Orlando, FL. Lakeland has been recognized as an “All American City.” It’s a friendly mid-size city of 250,000, with all of the amenities.

About This Organization

Victory Church launched in March 1989. From day one, the church has had the heart to reach lost people. Victory is truly known as Lakeland’s community church. In 2006 Victory launched the South Campus which is thriving today as they meet in a movie theater.

In 2020 (pre-COVID), Victory averaged approximately 3,000 in weekend attendance. They occupy 170,000 square feet of permanent buildings, located on 85 acres.

Every person is encouraged to live a life of personal evangelism. Victory Church gives about $1.5 million each year to advance the gospel locally and globally. They support 240 missionaries around the world and partner with 47 missional organizations. The Dream Center and inner-city Kids Club program are known city-wide for having a tremendous impact on the community.

Coming out of COVID, in-person participation continues to rise. The leadership of the church anticipates a renewed ministry vision in the coming year. Victory Church is preparing to enter a major building and AVL renovation in 2022. God has done great things over 30+ years of ministry, and the best days of ministry fruitfulness are still ahead.

Position Description

The worship experience at Victory is of utmost importance to create the atmosphere for people to hear the Word of God, respond to the Holy Spirit and experience new life in Christ.

Ministry excellence is valued in all aspects of weekend gatherings so that Jesus is reflected in those who don’t know Him. Victory Church also brings a Holy Spirit sensitivity to the worship services. Sunday mornings are not simply a musical performance, but rather a fresh encounter with God every week.

The stylistic focus is a contemporary and modern sound, with a connection to multiple generations. A key dynamic of the Sunday musical approach is a solid mix of modern music which resonates with a wide base while understanding how a well-placed modern hymn connects with all demographics. There is a solid team in place to utilize additional resources such as a worship choir or stringed instruments for select creative expressions on a Sunday service.

The right Holy Spirit-filled leader for this position will give dynamic leadership on and off-platform. We are looking for a Worship Pastor who will be tasked with leading the Worship Team. They will be asked to lead at both the North and South campuses.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Oversee the worship ministry at both campuses
  • Lead the worship staff

  • Strong heart for God
