Praise Point United Brethren church (Willshire, Ohio) is searching for a person who shares our passion for teaching through leading worship. It’s our current “low hole in the barrel.” As one worship leaders has described the role, “He preaches his sermon through leading the congregation in many voices, then the pastor preaches his sermon.”
We are looking for a person who is musically talented and can develop others to lead the congregation with excellence. Our ideal candidate will also possess media/tech skills to enhance our weekend services and make the most of every minute our congregation is assembled. Our ideal candidate will also understand the value of using doctrinally sound worship to enhance the topic of the day’s lesson. We are ready to invest into someone to develop them even beyond their current skills and abilities as they invest into the Kingdom through the local church.
Here are a few important details:
Status: Part-Time with the possibility to go FT as the congregation grows.
Salary & Benefits: Negotiable based on experience, abilities, etc.
Chemistry, Character, Competency: Chemistry with our congregation and our staff matters. We are a rural church and the right candidate will embrace the benefits and strengths that come from our geographical location. Character to model a life of worship and godliness matters. Competency with the Scriptures and music matters.
For more information or to apply: Please contact lead pastor, Brad Kittle via email at Brad@PraisePoint.net. Please include your name, contact info, and how you heard about the opening. This opportunity will be posted until filled.
Praise Point is the result of two smaller churches sharing vision for more effective ministry. These two churches combined in 2006 to address the needs of both the congregations and the region. Located in the rural village of Willshire, OH, a town of only 400 people, Praise Point has people who will travel for over 40 minutes just to be a part of what God is doing here.
Today, the church has grown to about 200 (bumping to just under 300 on special holidays) and impacts our region in practical and tangible ways. The growth potential here is exciting. Our slogan is “Teach. Train. Transform.” We diligently teach the Scriptures, Train in righteousness and watch God Transform hearts and lives. We are a teaching church. We desire to be known as a church that holds the Scriptures high as our authority for life and godliness. It’s been a joy and an honor to see so many lives transformed by the power of God.
We are a member church of the United Brethren in Christ, the first American-born denomination. Famous UBers such as Francis Scott Key and the Wright brothers are a part of our history. For more information, check us out on Facebook or our website.
Hillsdale, Mich., is a beautiful place to live and minister. In fact, our current Lead Pastor loved it so much, he’s been our faithful leader at Hillsdale United Brethren Church for nearly 20 years. As he enters retirement during the first quarter of 2018, we’re looking for our next Lead Pastor to take us into our next season of ministry; staying true to our tradition of community outreach and evangelism, and moving us forward in new and exciting ways as a disciple-making church.
We’re looking for a real leader. Someone who’s preaching leads to individual transformation in the lives of our congregation. Someone who’s had experience building a leadership team (we have 8 full and/or part-time staff right now). A person who wants to make a real difference in changing a community and has the energy and vision to do so.
We are a church of about 450 people. People are being introduced to Christ on a weekly basis. We’ve doubled in attendance in the past years, but we think we’re just getting started. We are very outreach and community oriented through things like Celebrate Recovery, a counseling center, Upwards Basketball, and an innovative marriage ministry. Our ministries to children and youth are making a difference.
