DIRECTOR OF WORSHIP AND ARTS
Music Ministry, FT Employee
Truro Anglican Church (Fairfax, VA)
Truro Anglican Church – a biblically orthodox, evangelical and charismatic Anglican congregation in Fairfax, VA – is seeking a Director of Worship & Arts to oversee the entire Worship Ministry for a large, diverse and dynamic congregation. Includes the supervision of several full-time and multiple part-time music staff, oversight of music ministries (some ensembles currently led by part-time staff) including multiple graded choirs, handbell ensembles, contemporary worship teams, instrumental groups, liturgical dance teams, and drama. The Director of Worship also oversees volunteer-led liturgical support ministries including Acolytes, Altar Guild, Lectors, and Ushers. Music for Weddings and Funerals is coordinated through this position.
The successful candidate should possess a mature Christian faith, demonstrate strong musicianship, administrative, and leadership skills, be well-versed in the Anglican liturgical tradition, and contemporary worship. Truro has historically incorporated a wide variety of musical styles in the course of any given service, each offered with the highest possible stylistic integrity. The candidate should possess either proven experience or an enthusiastic willingness to learn and lead worship in these various styles. The candidate should also be able to help the Rector incorporate new Christians, many who have come to faith on our Alpha Course, into our worship life.
Key responsibilities as a member of the Worship & Arts team would be based upon the candidate’s skills but could include any combination of the following: directing the Parish Choir and Children’s Choir, leading worship bands with piano or guitar, leading hymns and anthems from the organ throughout the principal Sunday morning and holiday services. There is internal flexibility for the candidate’s skills to be supplemented by part-time staff. Group worship planning and building teams of musicians and worship leaders is an essential skill for the Director of Worship & Arts.
Position available Spring 2014. Competitive salary and benefits package. Applicants should send a resume, a statement of faith, and references to the email below, as well as a CD or audio files of choral, contemporary worship, piano, voice and/or organ performances if readily available. Otherwise, please submit other materials now and send audio materials at earliest possible date.
