Gallatin First Church of the Nazarene is looking for a worship pastor. Gallatin is a community on the outskirts of metro Nashville. It has historically been a "small" community outside of Nashville but is quickly becoming a bedroom suburb of Nashville. Our community is rapidly growing and a wonderful place to live.
We have a solid base of talent on our praise team, as such you will need to be musically strong as well as a having strong leadership skills. The capacity to arrange a meaningful music set as well as cohere the team will be of paramount importance. Knowing how to work with people will be important, you will be a pastor to the all artists in the church (and not just the musical artists).
It will also be important for you to either know, or to be able to quickly get up to speed on the technologies our church uses such as: CCLI, SongSelect, Planning Center Services, ProPresenter on Mac. You will be responsible to be fluent on all worship based technologies and keeping our church current on what is available.
You will also need to be competent will sound engineering equipment; being able to maintain and update equipment as needed to keep us current and sounding great.
It will also be vitally important that you can recognize and honor the heritage and culture of the church while helping the church to continue to move forward into meaningful musical worship. It will be important for you to understand that a worship pastor is more than a music leader, but is someone who has the capacity to help the lead pastor to formulate a theologically coherent service.
The worship pastor position has traditionally been bi-vocational or part time at our church. However, based on your competencies and gifting - if they match a need in our church we could potentially work the role into something full time.
This is a pastoral position - you must either be credentialed in the Church of the Nazarene, or working towards credentialing. We are not looking for a song leader.
This is a great church, full of good people. God is doing some amazing things here. It is an exciting church to be a part of, and we believe that just the right person is out there being called by God to join our team, could it be you?
