Minister of Music, First Baptist Church Kenova, Kenova, WV
First Baptist Church Kenova is looking for a Full Time Minister of Music who meets the criteria for a pastor as listed in I Tim 3 and Titus 1. It is the primary purpose of the Minister of Music to develop a worship ministry capable of providing an engaging worship service that encourages the body to enter into corporate and personal worship.
Candidates must possess experience, training, and expertise in the field of music and worship. Strong leadership skills are a must. Being able to recruit and train sound/tech people is important. Web/graphic design experience is preferred but not required. Looking for a candidate who can either lead independently or on an instrument (eg, acoustic, keyboard). Candidates need to have some experience leading a choir of 30 or more people. Exceptions can be made if we feel confident that candidates have people and professional skills to excel in this area. Candidates must be able to take traditional hymns and arrange them in a way that reaches all ages. While our choir is more of a worship choir than a performance choir, occasionally they may do something special during weekend services. As far as style, we lean more on the contemporary side rather than the blended. We do like to tailor our service to appeal to the younger demographic of our church, so long as it’s not distracting. We do this by including lighting designs and mixing styles.
