    Richardson Church of the Nazarene is looking for a worship pastor!  We are a growing church currently running 375 to 400 in worship.  Our location in Collin County, Texas is one of the fastest growing counties in the United States.  And, the area around our church is busting at the seams with new growth as part of the CityLine development.  
   You will be joining a very strong ministry team with seven other pastoral staff members and five support staff. Our Creative Arts department is vibrant and strong with over seventy active participants involved in praise team, choir, band, orchestra, media/tech, drama, and discipleship ministries. As a church, RCN’s primary focus is on long term discipleship of new believers.  We also stress intergenerational ministry throughout our church.
