We are hiring!

We are currently searching for the next Worship Director/Pastor at Heartland Church.  Our convictions, according to what we see in scripture, are that the worship ministry is very much a ministry of the word. Therefore we are looking for a pastor/elder to fill the role of Worship Director/Pastor. Our desire is to find someone who has already been ordained as a pastor/elder or who is both willing and qualified to work toward eldership. You will notice that it is listed as either full-time or part-time. The role, when done by an individual, is a full-time role. Specifically with the shepherding responsibilities. This individual will have similar pastoral care duties as other pastors on staff, which means the responsibilities include far more than simply the music ministry of the church. However, we recognize that many individuals in the worship ministry sphere desire to conduct ministry through song both inside the church and outside the church. In other words, we know some individuals long serve the local church but also have musical involvement outside the church as well. Honestly, this fits well with the culture of Heartland. We believe the main responsibility of staff is to equip the saints for the work of ministry (Ephesians 4:12-16). Therefore, if a candidate presents themselves as someone who has the desire to be part-time and we believe him to be the right fit, we will pursue the candidate with the understanding that we will hire an apprentice to assist in the day to day.  Below you will see a snapshot of the job description for the position.
