    Why We Love This Opportunity

    The current season is one of excitement and anticipation at Berea First Baptist Church. With a resurgence of growth and many new families moving into their community, they are ready to embrace them with the love of Jesus. The next few years promise to be a time of growth as they have never seen. The new Worship Pastor will build upon a solid foundation, lead toward continued musical excellence, and shepherding the team toward deeper levels of spiritual maturity as they move forward into the future God has for them.

    About This Organization

    For over 175 years, Berea First Baptist Church has sought to connect people with Christ in the surrounding area. From its earliest days, the church held a vital role in the community’s life to the extent that the Berea community within Greenville derives its name from the church. The church facilities are located on prime acreage at a significant crossroads in the area. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Berea First Baptist welcomed an average of 500 people to their weekend worship services. From a thriving neighborhood church to a ministry that now reaches across several counties and cities, God uses this church for His glory!

    Well known for its community outreach efforts, vibrant children and student ministries, and excellent music, there has been a clear focus on authentic, relationship-based discipleship. Worship here is blended yet forward-leaning in musical style. Berea First Baptist believes that worship should be an expression of celebration – celebrating what Christ has done and will do in the lives of His people! Song selections vary from mainstream modern worship songs to songs from contemporary hymn-writers and modernized arrangements of classic hymns. Choir, band, and small group vocals are a regular part of the worship experience.

    Position Description

    The Worship Ministry at Berea has experienced significant spiritual growth over the last seven years. There is a healthy culture here, and they are ready to follow the new Worship Pastor. They respond best to someone who leads through relationships, with humility and understanding, not simply from a place of position and authority. There is incredible support and excitement about the future, and leadership is willing to do whatever is necessary to see the worship ministry succeed.

    The Worship Pastor will oversee all things related to the worship band, vocal teams, choir, audio, and video teams. This person should have the administrative and organizational ability to plan, communicate, and equip these ministries to thrive. Musically, the Worship Pastor should have a strong platform and vocal ability and lead with confidence, charisma, and authenticity. This leader should be comfortable working with both instrumentalists and vocalists. While not required, the ability to play and lead from an instrument would be a plus. Ideally, the new leader will have the expertise to work with the choir, though the current worship associate can lead it if necessary. Either way, an appreciation for blending contemporary, band-driven worship music with a modern worship choir is needed.
