Open Position: Pastor for Worship Gatherings

We are seeking a new teammate to join with us in equipping God's people to do God's work in God's world. 

About The Gathering

The Gathering is a Christ-centered church, warmly embracing all individuals and actively demonstrating God’s love to the world. We seek to create a comfortable environment where anyone can “come as they are”, yet we hope and pray that no one will leave as they were because we all want to be changed by Jesus.


We are a non-denominational church located in Centerville, Ohio (just south of Dayton, Ohio). Since its inception, our church has been characterized by grace and service. We are comprised of people from a wide variety of backgrounds and people who have a wide variety of experiences, occupations and opinions. The majority of our ministry is carried out by volunteer partners and we have a wide base of people who generously support the church financially.


Our church has doubled in the past few years. Now we are building the team that will continue to drive increased multiplication as God enables us.


The Teammate We Are Looking For

We expect that you love Jesus. Nothing is more foundational in any team member. We also expect that you are being changed as a result of your relationship with Him. Alongside this foundation, we expect you will be an excellent teammate. We embrace truthfulness, openness, authenticity and healthy conflict. We avoid silos and turf wars. Communication with one another is the key to our team’s success.


We believe in teams. We don’t look for leaders who will do everything on their own. We look for leaders who will invest in and enable teams to do the ministry together. Our tactic to accomplish all ministry is to empower partners to serve in their areas of giftedness.

The Role We Are Filling

Our Pastor for Worship Gatherings will equip and lead a team of skilled musicians to guide our church in Christ-centered worship. You will be comfortable in this role if you are passionate about pointing people to Christ and if you have a high view of Scripture. You will do well if you are familiar with ProPresenter, Planning Center, CCLI, SongSelect or similar apps.


KEY SKILLS AND CHARACTER TRAITS FOR THIS POSITION:

  • Must be able to work collaboratively and demonstrate flexibility with other ministry leaders

  • Must be able to build and empower teams to provide leadership and support during weekend gatherings and as needed for other events

  • Must be proficient musically, capable to lead band rehearsals and congregational singing

  • Should have a working knowledge of needed technology for weekend gatherings

  • Should have a general understanding of current trends and emerging technology in worship leadership

At the conclusion of the search process, a finalized job description will be collaboratively crafted according to the gifts and experience of the candidate and will be included with an offer to hire.
