    About Connection Christian Church

    Connection CC began in 2005 as a multi-site campus meeting first in an elementary school, then a renovated warehouse, and now a movie theater. The campus grew and matured to the point where becoming an independent congregation made sense to the leadership, and so that process was completed in 2013. We are now in the final stages of a building program and will be in our own facilities by Christmas.

     

    We describe our mission as connecting people to God and each other through Jesus. We place a priority on inviting and serving our community, and on bringing relevant, engaging Biblical teaching for children, teens and adults who attend. We’re looking for a team member who is ready to jump in and grow with us!

     

    Key responsibilities for this position include:

    Developing, scheduling, and leading all aspects of the weekend worship experience, including music, creative elements, and stage décor, in cooperation with the lead minister;
    Recruiting and training operators for the sound, video and lighting teams;
    Planning and scheduling special worship services;
    Creating graphics and video elements.
    The team member we’re looking for will have these characteristics:

    ·       Gifted and trained vocally and musically;

    ·       An engaging personality, and able to lead others well;

    ·       Able to coach and develop team members;

    ·       A self-starter who values vision, planning, and organization;

    ·       A servant-hearted person who is ministry-minded;

    ·       A humble and constant learner;

    ·       A growing faith nurtured by personal spiritual growth habits;

    ·       Restoration Movement background (or agreement with beliefs & principles).

     

    The position is part time, but we’ll consider offering full time status to a candidate depending on experience and skills.

     

    Interested in starting the conversation? Send us a letter of interest, résumé, and a link to a video of you leading a worship experience to worship@connectionchristian.org.
