Position Objective: To provide pastoral leadership to the worship ministries of Killian Baptist Church.  ​

Position Pay:  $165 per week

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