About this role

Collierville Bible Church is accepting resumes for a part-time Worship Leader. We are looking for someone who loves people and desires to make an influential impact on the worship of the people of Collierville Bible Church.

About CBC:

Collierville Bible Church (CBC) is a warm, friendly body of believers that love each other and have genuine humility in their interpersonal relationships. CBC is a non-denominational, gospel-centered and theologically robust church whose purpose is to "Glorify God through Gospel Centered Disciple-Making."

Worship attendance is about 100 people. The worship style is generally contemporary with a full worship band including drums, bass, acoustic guitar and keyboard plus other instruments as personnel are available. However, we appreciate a variety of worship styles and incorporate other styles from time to time.


Position Description:

The worship leader will provide leadership in the areas listed below and in harmony with the lead pastor, elders, and congregation to accomplish the purpose of the church.

Position Characteristics:


Commitment to Christ and to personal spiritual growth through regular time in prayer and the Word.

Able to facilitate and lead a group of volunteer musicians and singers.


Able to lead with guitar or keyboard, especially when volunteers on lead instruments are not available.


Have a basic understanding of music theory and the ability to apply that in a volunteer band setting.

Position Responsibilities:

*Congregational Responsiveness

Actively engage with other members of the congregation outside of worship services.

Participate in the discipleship process of CBC, including life group or other discipleship groups.

*Lead Worship

Lead worship at Sunday worship service, midweek youth service, retreats, and special occasions.

Schedule and coordinate replacements during times of absence with as much lead time as possible.

*Plan Worship

Work with the Lead Pastor, preferably with weekly face to face meetings, to formulate worship service order for upcoming weeks.

Coordinate volunteer schedule for musicians, singers and audio/video volunteers for weekend worship services and special occasions. Note: CBC currently uses Planning Center, an online tool, to manage the volunteer schedule and the music and worship service planning.

*Equip Worship

Help Life Group leadership with access and ideas for worship singing in their groups.

*Study Worship

Regularly research new music to incorporate into the worship repertoire that is theologically sound, musically accessible to congregational singing and soul-stirring for the body.

*Regular Practices

Facilitate weekly practice that includes a modest devotional/worship time with the team in order to properly prepare for the weekend worship service or special occasion.

*Team Building and Management

Actively recruit new worship team members based on the gifts and availability of the church body.

Develop relationships with the worship team through times of fellowship and an (optional) annual worship team retreat.

*Department Budget

Manage the Worship budget for supplies related to the worship ministry and related expenses such as new music and equipment.

Plan the Worship budget for each budget year in coordination with the Treasurer.

Position Hours:

There are no required office hours. Except when the job description calls for personal availability, such as practices, meetings, etc., most tasks can be completed with only a phone and computer with a flexible schedule.

Position Growth:

This is a paid part-time position with the hope that as the church grows and gains financial health, it can turn into a full-time position, if desired. The long-term hope is that this position could transition from Worship Leader to Worship Pastor with a stronger influence and impact from an overall church leadership perspective should the person be qualified as a Pastor according to 1 Tim. 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9.
