Job Description

Job Posting - Pastor of Worship and Creative Arts – Full-time 

Creekside Church is all about helping people . . . Follow Jesus.  Love God.  Love People.  Launched in 1989, the church’s Waterloo campus is located on 33 acres in northwest Waterloo.  Creekside has a second campus in Kitchener in a leased facility.  Creekside is a non-denominational, evangelical, contemporary, team-oriented, growing congregation (averaging 2100+ per Sunday) with multiple staff, and five Sunday services across two physical campuses.  Creekside also has an online campus.  Creekside is passionate about evangelism, worship, teaching and caring for those both inside and outside the church family.

Worship is more than the music before a sermon. Worship happens every day and should never be confined to the church. The responsibility of a Worship Pastor is to lead others to live a life like the lyrics of a song from Psalms, continually praising God for His love and goodness. If you agree, you could be what we’re looking for.

 

This is a senior leadership role at Creekside.  Working in collaboration with the Teaching Pastor, the Pastor of Worship & Creative Arts is responsible for all creative aspects of our Sunday services and special events.  This includes worship, creative arts, and stage design.   We hold 3 back-to-back services that run concurrently in 2 auditoriums on Sunday mornings and we have another campus in Kitchener with 2 services.  Still interested?  Read on....
