Sevier Heights Church

Worship Leader



Why I Love This Opportunity

Brent Dyer


Sevier Heights is seeking a full-time Worship Leader to join their incredibly gifted team to lead, plan, and direct meaningful worship experiences each weekend. Sevier Heights is an exciting, growing fellowship with more than 5000 people attending each weekend. For the right candidate, this opportunity offers an exciting change to do life and ministry for many years to come.


About This Organization

The Creative Arts Ministry at Sevier Heights features modern and relevant worship experiences each week. On Sunday, congregants will find three service options – one with choir/orchestra and two led by bands. While the styles have subtle differences, the experience, the set list, and the flow are all identical. The highly creative staff works to coordinate sermon series, print graphics, web, and film to create a seamless worship experience for those attending. Although the church is multi-generational, the congregation is trending younger and younger. With more than 1300 college students attending the Sunday night service, this segment of the population drives many of the decisions the staff makes.
