Church in Raleigh - Raleigh, NC 27610
Contemporary Worship service looking for sound engineer to join our ministry team. This is a part-time paid position paying $15,000 annually. Time commitment is Wednesday night from 6:30-9:30pm and Sunday morning from 8:30am - 12:30pm. During the Christmas season there is usually one additional service on Christmas Eve that would also be your responsibility.
The right person for this job has experience mixing sound for a live band. Your Christian faith and your understanding of the "contemporary worship" environment are important. Your ability to create a beautiful live mix that is sparkly and clear is critical. Understanding that you are part of a ministry team is important as you will be asked to train a volunteer crew under you. This AV Team is currently in place and able to assist where needed. Your understanding of sound equipment and the technical engineering required to set up and run it effectively is critical to obtaining this job.
Our entire team is fueled by a passion to worship using these instruments: drums, electric guitars, acoustic guitars, bass, percussion, keyboard, vocals, etc. Your past experience working with a large team is helpful to fulfilling this role. We play a wide range of music from Christian artists such as Chris Tomlin, Crowder, Matt Maher, Hillsong, Matt Redman, Passion, Mercy Me, Kristian Stanfill, Bethel Music, as well as some updated hymns.
We are a fun bunch, but serious about our mission to lead people to Jesus. If you feel led, please be prepared to send your resume and a list of references of places you have worked, either as the first or second engineer in a church setting.
The Really Important Stuff: Aside from your gifts and abilities, we are interested in your relationship with Jesus. We all have our past failures and scars to show, but as the Bible teaches we should be accountable to living a lifestyle consistent with Jesus' teachings. If you are involved in anything illegal, unethical, or immoral, it's probably best you not apply as we need to know your commitment for living as a Christian is the same as ours. Not perfect, just forgiven, and living under His grace in a lifestyle that attempts to bring glory to Jesus every day. We know God is growing us as His people, not just as musicians and technical teams. So yes, we are looking for that special technical expert and sound guru wrapped up in an easy-going/laid-back person who loves to help lead people in worship and digs a great meal with friends.
Our prayer is that you would want to grow spiritually as part of our team and find a "home" here at our church. Broken people welcome : -)
We are affiliated with the United Methodist denomination, expressing worship at our church in a evangelical Bible-based setting infused with contemporary worship.
Before submitting your name for consideration be sure you fulfill the above requirements plus you have a ton of live music experience (in a contemporary band / church setting). This job is not for anyone with limited experience and applicants won't be responded to who don't meet these minimum qualifications.
**Applicants that have audio mixes of their work will be given priority.
Thanks for your interest and God bless.
