It serves as a radically inclusive, justice oriented hub for campus involvement and connection with the local community. Our next Chaplain Resident will assist in the discernment of our future structure, mission statement, and long term goals.

Profile Summary
Pfafftown Christian Church (PCC) has begun a search for a new Senior Pastor. PCC is located on the perimeter of Winston-Salem, N.C., the fifth largest city in the state. It is often referred to as the “City of the Arts and Innovation” and in 2012 was listed among the 10 best places to retire in the U.S. by CBS Money Watch. PCC was founded in 1865 and has a large campus and Community Garden with plenty of space for growth. We have no debt and about $250,000 in reserves and endowments. Our church has declined in membership in recent years and consequently we have taken the time and effort to employ an intentional interim process designed by the Center for Congregational Health. We are now ready to find the right Pastor to lead us to grow in both members and in outreach. This person will inherit a qualified staff which will enable the Senior Pastor to invest most of his/her time in focusing on leading us to accomplish these two objectives. We will look outside the Disciples of Christ denomination and offers of compensation will be competitive and can possibly be structured with incentives.

GOOD SAMARITAN EPISCOPAL CHURCH

goodsamaritanbrownsburg.org

Title:                        Music and Creative Arts Ministry Director

Effective:                March 1, 2016

Hours:                      Part-time, 10 hours weekly

Salary:                     $25.00 an hour

Supervises:             One-time supplemental musicians

Good Samaritan Episcopal Church is a growing community of open-minded Christians who seek to do what Jesus taught us: to include, love, and serve all people without exception. We are a new church without walls, and we meet in places where we can serve and be with our neighbors. We seek to build a diverse fellowship, and we welcome all who want to ask deep questions and put faith into action.

As we begin moving toward regular Sunday worship services in fall 2016 (projected), we seek a Music and Creative Arts Ministry Director who can lead us in developing and growing the imaginative, expressive side of our community. We would like our worship and music to speak to and more deeply nourish our passion and call as servants, and we seek to shape our music and worship with integrity and excellence as we establish a different kind of church.

This is a part-time (10 hr/week) position, but will likely expand to 15-20 hours per week in the fall of 2016.

CORE RESPONSIBILITIES

·        Collaborating with the Vicar to choose and prepare high quality music that enables good congregational singing and that speaks to our mission and to the different liturgical seasons. (Note: in the Episcopal Church, the clergy-in-charge has final responsibility for and oversight over all music and liturgy.)

·        Recruiting and overseeing a great volunteer group of instrumentalists and vocalists for one service on Sunday mornings, and using paid vocalists and instrumentalists on occasion to boost and enhance the worship experience.

·        Rehearsing and leading music for worship, and teaching our people how to sing.

·        Collaborating with the Vicar to plan and create a worship ambiance and atmosphere that is, at once, simple, beautiful, experiential, reverent, and joyful, and that both nourishes and inspires our members into action. Creating ambiance includes everything from projections and backdrops to fabrics and textures to music and hands-on prayer stations. Simple means that a team you oversee can easily set up and tear down week by week, as we worship in a local school.

·        Coordinating a team of volunteers that plan and implement components of audiovisuals, art, and beauty to supplement our worship and gatherings. (As a church without walls, we welcome creative flourishes that provide texture and pizzazz to enliven the spaces in which we meet.)

·        Organizing all music-related activities (rehearsal scheduling, charting, publicity, etc.) and coordinating with lay leaders/volunteers for other aspects of the ministry.

CORE COMPETENCIES

The ideal candidate has a strong commitment to excellence in liturgical music and hymnody. She/he will lead strongly on keyboard, guitar and/or vocals (if you play something else, too, let us know!), with a broad musical range that is centered in traditional Christian hymnody and liturgical service music (currently, this comprises the majority of our worship experience).

However, we also want our candidate to help us embrace and explore the diversity in other forms of music, and we seek to include a broader range of styles/genres that complement our traditional focus, including:

·        folk/bluegrass/jazz/acoustic updates of traditional Christian hymns (Sutan Stevens, Welcome Wagon)

·        contemporary Christian worship music (Gungor, Aaron Niequist)

·        contemplative music (e.g. Taize chant)

·        secular music (when appropriate)

·        ability to put down an instrument and teach people to sing an old spiritual a cappella, maybe even with different vocal parts

·        something we haven't thought of!

As well, the candidate will also need other artistic skills, or the resources/ability to recruit and coordinate volunteers with such skills as:

·        Space design

·        Lighting

·        Sound

·        Powerpoint or other projection-based design

·        Fabrics and textures

·        Floral design

·        Visual arts

·        Experience on one or more worship-planning software (MediaShout, ProPresenter, etc.)

Additionally, the candidate will need to be:

·        An, inclusive, enthusiastic Christian

·        Committed to a "church without walls" concept (radically inclusive, not focused on a building but on people and serving others)

·        Passionate for building a diverse community of people at different places on the Christian journey

·        Able to initiate and manage multiple projects simultaneously in dynamic environment

·        Able to work well both independently and in teams

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS

·        Music and arts ministry experience in a congregation or church-plant context or similar musical leadership experience

·        Demonstrated leadership skills

·        Must pass a criminal background check and Oxford Documents screening

·        Must satisfactorily complete Safeguarding God's People and Safeguarding God's Children online courses prior to beginning work.

Good Samaritan Episcopal Church and the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis are very committed to diversity. We strongly encourage all qualified applicants, especially people from racial/ethnic minority groups, to apply.

Our ethos is adventurous, flexible, authentic, open, fun, welcoming, and willing to try almost anything once. We are not looking for a rock star, or a diva, but for someone who enjoys leading God's people in worship and helping people discover the countercultural joy of singing together and using creativity to express unspoken aspects of the Holy One.

Interested or know someone who might be? Send an email to gray0goodsamaritanbrownsburg.o_rg with ALL of the following (1) a description of your style, repertoire, and experience; (2) a short resume including references and your contact information; and (3) audio or video links to samples of your music/music leading.

Brief Church Mission Statement:

Clayton Presbyterian Church lives as a family of active faith through Christian worship, study, fellowship and service, for the glory of God.

What is the congregation’s or organization’s vision for ministry:

Church Leadership Connection

The Call System for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)

The congregation’s vision is to “Live Faith”. Faith is believing and trusting and we live out this vision by serving each other, the community and the world by working our missions. We encourage ourselves and others we know. We study the Bible. While maintaining the traditions of our church, we remain open to experimenting with new things that might attract new members. We tell others about our church and faith and open our fellowship activities to all.

How do you feel called to reach out to address the emerging needs of your community or constituency:

We are called by serving on various committees and working collectively to accomplish our desired outcomes. Historically, we have listened to our members to uncover possibilities/opportunities in the community. However, the needs of the

community can’t fully or properly be addressed until we meet the needs of our church.        When we have successfully achieved
our goal to call a pastor to our church, our congregation will participate in and support endeavors to reach out to the community.

How will this position help you to reach your vision and mission goals:

The pastor will lead and unify us to achieve our desired goals. We are a congregation who desires a candidate who fosters a sense of collaboration within our church and community.

Provide a description of the characteristics needed by the person who is open to being called to this congregation and or organization:

We are a relatively conservative congregation who will respect, accept and adapt to someone who reciprocates. We would like to see someone who can confidently relate to both younger and older members of the church by sharing God’s word in meaningful ways. Our ministry through music is very strong, so we would like a pastor who is willing to work collaboratively with our music minister to create the best programming possible. We enjoy a pastor who is a good communicator and listener who will look at various ways to bring the message to us, whether it is through Bible studies, book studies, Christian Movie nights or other avenues. Our ideal pastor would be sincere, faithful, organized, motivated, energetic, adaptable, approachable and administratively sound. We would ask that potential changes within the church be done in a measured and adaptive way, providing time for congregation to suggest, adjust and accept. Pastoral care outside of church is very important to our members.

What specific tasks, assignments, and program areas will this person have responsibility?

Our pastor will lead most of our programming including the delivery of the weekly sermon, moderating session, community outreach, and participating in Bible study and school. In addition, we would look forward to having him/her join us in our fellowship activities such as Santa Breakfast, Trunk or Treat, Community Easter Egg Hunt and our Christmas Cantata to name a few. Historically, a weekly email newsletter has helped us stay in touch with activities in the church and the needs of our members. We are also receptive to new ideas in leadership and fellowship which may be suggested by our pastor.
