Job Opportunity at RCC: Worship Leader

 Redemption City Church is in its 7th year as a church in Franklin, TN (south side of Nashville). We are a gospel-centered, prayer-saturated, relationally-warm, evangelistic church that has steadily grown over the years. Right now, we’re seeing around 400 attendees each Sunday, which is up over 100 from where we were last year.
 
As we continue to grow, we’re looking to hire someone to lead our worship ministry alongside Jed, our lead pastor. This role would be a full-time position. As is typical for this kind of role, it would require the ability to lead worship on Sunday mornings, develop the worship team/ministry, and more—with the heart of a pastor. The size of our church means that it is also a plus if candidates are able to help in other areas of the church’s ministry (eg. Video, Missions, etc.).
 
While we are open to prayerfully considering anyone that is interested, we believe we are looking for someone with some experience leading a worship ministry. Also, someone who embodies our “Leadership Behaviors,” which are listed below.
 
LEADERSHIP BEHAVIORS

Own the Mission – We want our leaders to “own the mission.” We want them to be “all in,” embodying the best of what we’re trying to see happen. Leadership at RCC isn’t just a job, it’s a calling. We want people leading people in a direction they are passionately pursuing and excited about.  
 
Pursue holistic health – We want leaders who are healthy spiritually, relationally, emotionally, and physically. If you aren’t healthy personally, it won’t be long before you aren’t healthy professionally. And that’s a major “lose-lose” for the leader and the church. We care about the people who lead here. We are looking for “win-win” situations, so we pursue holistic health.  
 
Make it better – Everything we do is imperfect, which is why we want to be a staff that consistently tries to make “it” better. Whatever “it” is, whether it is an event, the sermon, the planning, our online presence, or anything else, we want to be a people who are developing, improving. We want developers. Coasting won’t cut it at Redemption City, so make it better.
 
Light up the room – Every person either tends to regularly “light up” a room with joyful energy or “darken” it. While we all have tough days, we want our leaders to be known as people whose energy, passion, humor, etc. to light up the rooms they’re in.
 
Sweat the “small stuff” – We want leaders understand that small stuff is significance. Whether it is responsive emailing, picking up trash in the parking lot, straightening a chair at an event, or thinking about the tone of our voice, we want leaders to be people who see that small stuff is significant in Christ’s kingdom.  
 
Honor up, down, and all around – Paul says to “outdo one another in showing honor.” We want leaders who take this challenge seriously, whether it is talking about their direct report, a volunteer on their team, or anyone else. Put that person in the best light possible. Give them the benefit of the doubt. We don’t have to all agree, but we all have to honor.
 
Lead winsomely – We want to lead people winsomely with a lovingly and joyfully “win others over” approach, not an abrasive, forced leadership approach. Rejecting abrasive approaches, we want to move people in a direction that is best for them in a way that is easy for them to want to follow. We want real leadership, but winsome leadership.
 
Work as a team – While you may be able to go faster on your own, you will go further as a team. That’s why we have ministry teams everywhere. That’s why we battle against the sinful tendencies to act and speak in a way that “works against the team.” We work as a team because Jesus created us with unique skills and passions that are meant to compliment one another for strategic kingdom advancement.
 
While there have been tweaks to this list over the years, it provides a solid picture of what our leadership expectations are. We use them in hiring, developing, and assessing our staff.
