The Worship Pastor will be the “organizer & producer” of each worship service and of special programs. Although the Senior Pastor is the “director” in terms of setting the theme and overall direction, the Worship Pastor will oversee and coordinate all the details that a service encompasses. The Worship Pastor must be a visionary who is creative in leading people to God. The Worship Pastor is a leader who can communicate a direction in a way that inspires those around him/her to join in the pursuit of that vision. This position is a pastoral one,and therefore, requires the individual to serve not solely as a director of musical or performing arts, but also as a shepherd to the people who serve in this ministry.
