The Foundry is a church that is at the start of their next chapter, relaunching after 75 years of faithful ministry in order to walk into all that Jesus has in store for our future. We are located in the Black Hills of South Dakota: a desirable tourist destination that is alluring enough to drive people to sell their businesses and move here for a lifestyle change. We are searching for an individual who doesn’t just fill a job. Rather, we are looking for someone who is creative, talented, and passionate enough to redefine their role. We are searching for an individual who is interested in more than just stage time, someone who is ready to leverage Biblical influence. The “job” is 40 hours a week, with potentially more hours on peak weeks (i.e. Christmas, Easter, retreats, etc), but the role is a lifestyle. We desire to lead people in their next step with Jesus. This pastoral servant should be ardent about using music and creativity to build Jesus’ kingdom by discipling musicians and artists in their next step of faith.
Ideally this person would be able to not just lead worship songs, but could lead a worship team. They should also have some skills with technology (sound engineering and A/V tools). The ability to lead and teach musicians and artists is invaluable. As a church, we desire to lead people in their next step with Jesus. We prioritize the people in our statement as children, teenagers, young families and generations. Understanding how you similarly prioritize people would be a major asset in a ministry with us. The applicant should contact The Foundry at firstname.lastname@example.org with a resume. A video with some sampling of previous worship leading would be helpful in evaluating candidates.
