    We offer a contemporary service and a traditional service

    The ideal candidate would be a youth guy who is also able to work with/lead a band and praise team and lead contemporary worship.  Worship leading/music ability is a plus, not a requirement.

    Experience would be a plus however we have a spiritually strong leadership team (elders and staff) that is willing and capable of mentoring a young man to get the best out of his gifts and abilities.  Our leadership has enabled us to enjoy a history of stability, i.e.; the senior minister has been here almost 19 years, the youth minister just short of 20 years, and the children’s minister 11 years

    Please do not be discouraged from applying if you do not meet this ideal picture.  Yes, we are seeking the ideal candidate, and yet we believe many of the skills and gifts can be learned and developed, but character and drive cannot.

    Position Description

    Centerville Christian Church is seeking a Full-time Worship Arts Minister to assist in building a culture of selfless worship both individually and corporately. This position will provide oversight and leadership to all aspects of the worship experience at CCC.  


    The Worship Arts Minister will oversee all elements of service programming including music, audio, video, lighting, creative elements, and planning under the supervision of the Senior Minister and ultimately the elders.  

    The Worship/arts minister will:

     Lead and rehearse with teams to plan and coordinate these elements with excellence all for the glory of God through the lifting up of Jesus and through recognition of the cross and the resurrection.

    Participate as a worship leader and musician as required.

    Solicit creative feedback from worship team that includes input into musical choices and provides shared stewardship of the ministry.

    Align ministry volunteers with CCC’s mission, vision, and strategy.

    Understand that central to the role of the Worship Arts Minister is the recruiting, equipping, and discipling of volunteers for service in the Body of Christ under the umbrella of the worship ministry.

    Attend weekly staff meetings and other meetings as directed.

    Create goals, guidelines, and accountability that encourage recruiting and volunteer development.  Set and meet proper deadlines.

    Give necessary and proper training and development of volunteers sharing in this ministry.

    Manage the Worship Arts budget (including sub-areas of oversight), ensuring that all guidelines for expenses and purchases are properly followed.

    Work with the Senior Minister to plan and develop series that accomplish the vision as well as spiritual, educational, and organizational goals of the church.

    Familiarity with Mac OS, Planning Center Online, Propresenter, and/or Elexio church management software is a plus.  He will also oversee all praise & worship ministry initiatives for other events such as Christmas and Easter programming.  He may be asked to preach on occasion.


    Applicants should have a solid and developed understanding of music and theory that is evident in not only the planning phase but in the leading of musicians in practice.  Preferred applicants should have 3+ years experience as a full time minister in a similar position (300+ in attendance) working with a multi-staff team.  Though not required, a bachelors degree or higher is preferred.


    CCC’s current musical setting consists of the following:  We currently have two identical worship services that focus more on worship than style – so some form of blended would be the best description.  There is a high level of diverse talent with current musicians/abilities including drummers, guitarists, keys, sax, flute, mandolin, etc.  CCC is a kind of hybrid church in that she is in a rural setting but with more attendees than typical rural churches – she draws from the whole county and even from Ohio.  She is around 180 years old and has a strong and positive community presence through service and compassion – especially in the local schools.  She has undergone recent transition in terms of worship and Spiritual growth that has not yet translated into numbers.  Her leadership is unified and hungry to see damaged lives changed by the Lordship of Jesus and the indwelling of His Spirit.  The church is debt-free, has new property to build on and has substantial savings to be used for future facilities. She is positioned well to impact the kingdom powerfully. 


    Vital to this role is a clear, vibrant, ongoing relationship with Jesus that is evidenced by fruit and leading of the Holy Spirit.  Your ongoing personal growth and maturity should be your best motivator to those you lead as they witness Jesus in the details of your life.  CCC needs someone who will connect to others quickly and invest in their lives as they grow in their love for them. Applicants should have a strong and healthy relationship with their spouse (if married) and children (if any). Ongoing, active participation in a life group is essential.  You should be motivated to seek avenues for personal evangelism outside the church setting. You must set appropriate boundaries to protect your integrity and family.  You should be a student of scripture, recognizing that the Holy Spirit’s primary and best “attested-to” directives are via the New Testament Scriptures and the Old Testament Scriptures so viewed through the lens of Christ Jesus.  You must also be committed to our core values and hold to our statement of beliefs (available on church website):


    TLC core values of CCC staff are as follows:

    T eam Building:

    Must demonstrate leadership, effective people skills and a consistent desire and ability to train and liberate others to minister.

    Must be a real team player who thrives on interaction, works well with others, and is committed to placing the needs of the team (church staff and volunteer staff) ahead of himself.

    Must be committed to cultivating team ministry and equipping volunteers.

    L earning:

    Must be continually pursuing personal growth in Christ and exercise of personal gifts and abilities.

    Must be committed to life-long learning as he seeks to be an expert in his field.  This will include but is not limited to regularly reading materials related to his role as well as conferences at least once every two years.

    C haracter:

    Must diligently seek a vital and growing personal relationship with the Lord.  He will develop character by being committed to being a student of scripture, a man of prayer, and pursuer of righteousness as a person of integrity.  

    He must set an example by managing his own household well, loving his wife as Christ loved the church, and bringing his children up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Opportunity to Use My Abilities for God

“At KCU I was able to learn under the guidance of the best ministry professors and administrators. KCU gave me
my first opportunity to use my abilities for God. KCU gave me an opportunity to excel athletically, artistically, and
academically. But most of all, when I look back on my time at KCU, I will remember the people. I will remember the
smiles, I will remember the laughs my friends and I shared. KCU is a family and one I am very proud to be in.”
