Director of Worship and Outreach
Forest Hills United Methodist Church, Forest Lake MN

Posted 3/20/15

Forest Hills United Methodist Church (FHUMC) in Forest Lake (a northern suburb of the Twin Cities) is seeking to hire a three-quarter time Director of Worship and Outreach.

The position will have primary responsibility over the ways our congregation engages in worship. This includes crafting worship experiences–in conjunction with the pastor and worship team; supervising, training, and cultivating individual musicians and groups; providing leadership, vision, and ministry direction as a person on staff; and oversight of the resources of worship, such as budgets, technology, and ministry plans. It is our church’s belief that corporate worship is both essential for the congregation and an important way our congregation engages with the wider community. Therefore we also want this person to help our congregation with outreach. This component of the position will be crafted around the talents and abilities of the person hired.

FHUMC is a Bible-based United Methodist congregation in Forest Lake, MN. We worship about 110 on Sundays in one worship service. We are seeking to grow our corporate worship experiences to multiple services, perhaps not all on Sunday mornings. Currently a praise-style worship team (“Sanctify”) leads worship each week. It consists of two paid musicians, four regular volunteers, and a number of other rotating volunteers. The worship team currently rehearses Wednesday evenings for an hour and a half, and Sunday mornings for an hour before worship. We also host a number of special worship services, such as on Thanksgiving Eve, Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Holy Week, and other occasions.

We wish to consider a student who is nearing the end of his or her degree program. We are planning to offer a three-quarter time position from May 2015 through May of 2016. By summer of 2016 we would consider expanding this to a full-time position if the person is a good fit and the worship ministries are growing.

Qualifications we are looking for include

Those seeking to open a discussion about this ministry position are invited to send a resume and letter of interest to Rev. David Werner at foresthills.pastor@gmail.com, or call at 651-464-5249.
Job posting open until April 30, 2015

33 Hours per week expected
$25,200 Annual salary, paid out twice a month, on the 15th and last day of the month
$2,600 Benefit: either tax sheltered retirement benefit or non-tax sheltered health insurance
$400 Continuing Education
