Job Summary:

Part-time position: 10-15 hr/week Stipend: Compensation is based on experience, leadership ability, skills, etc. As our church grows, this position may become a full-time position.  Description: The best candidate will be a skilled musician and vocalist capable of leading a congregation in musical worship. The Director of Musical Worship is a collaborative position that provides leadership, organization, and care for a team of music leaders, musicians, and sound technicians.  Responsibilities: •      Select and arrange music that glorifies God and inspires the congregation to worship •  Work alongside the pastors to create a coherent worship service •    Cultivate and grow our team of musicians and worship leaders •  Schedule musicians and rehearsals; prepare chord charts and sheet music •    Setup, teardown, and maintain musical equipment About Our Church: Church of the Resurrection is a vibrant and growing 2 year-old Anglican parish in Highland Park (Northeast Los Angeles).  We are a Christ-centered, Spirit-filled, multi-ethnic, and neighborhood-loving church.  Our Anglican worship reflects the three great “streams” of Christianity: catholic, evangelical, and charismatic. We believe music should express a passion for God and a life that has been transformed by the Gospel in the power of the Spirit. Like the Psalms (our ancient hymnal), we seek to express the full range of human emotion—everything from celebration to lament.  Our Style: We appreciate a variety of musical styles. Thus far our music has included hymns, contemporary songs, classical music, canticles, and chanting. We would also welcome gospel music and corridos (traditional Mexican hymns).  We seek to be ‘parish church’ that celebrates the diversity of our neighborhood. Because our neighborhood is majority Latino, our liturgy includes bilingual elements in Spanish. (For example, we usually pray the Lord’s Prayer in Spanish and we often sing at least two songs partly in Spanish). Over the past 15 year, our neighborhood has attracted some of the most creative people from all over the country. Our neighbors from the creative class often have strong opinions when it comes to music style, genre, and performance. Thus, we are looking for a musical director who can be sensitive to the multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, and creative sensibilities of Northeast Los Angeles.  For more information about our church, please visit: resurrectionla.org   Denomination: Anglican Ordained or Non-Ordained Position: Not Ordained Contact Name: Rev.
