Job Description:

Associate Minister – Director of Worship

As the Associate Minister – Director of Worship you will contribute to making disciples of Jesus Christ by ensuring that seekers, guests, new members and not-so-new members are drawn more deeply into worship, find meaningful relationships in the body of Christ, and whose faith is nurtured in accordance with the Bible. As we say at CrossBridge: Love, Change, Together, in Christ.

You need to have strong leadership and communication skills, in addition to experience leading a cappella and instrumental worship.

In addition to musical talents, you will need to have a passion for Small Groups, Preaching and Pastoral Care. CrossBridge is located on the 280 corridor in Birmingham, Alabama and currently has around 400 members.
