Calvary Church in Longmont, CO is looking for a new Worship Leader/ Pastor. We’re a church of about 650 people nestled right next to the beautiful Rocky mountains.
We are seeking a Worship Pastor who will work with our Lead Pastor to develop worship services that will lead our church in dynamic, participatory worship. We’re looking for a ‘developer of teams’ who is interested in building a worship ministry that will engage our current congregation while being attractive to those currently outside of our church.
Your first six months will be focused on gaining a deep understanding of Calvary’s culture, Longmont’s culture, and beginning to identify and develop worship teams and processes that will engage our church in vibrant worship experiences.
This position will require you to recruit, develop, and unleash volunteers to lead our church in worship. You’ll need to lead worship from the stage, but an even bigger responsibility will be to develop the leaders that we have in the church to lead through their giftings. You’ll also need to make sure that members of our worship and production teams are well trained and pastored while they serve.
This is an exciting time in the life of our church, and a great opportunity for the right person that has some previous experience in team building and culture building.

The Quest Church is looking for their next Worship Arts Pastor. Our current Worship Pastor is leaving for the mission field. He’s leaving big shoes to fill, but we’re confident that God is calling just the right person to help lead our growing church of nearly 700 people just outside of Dallas.
Royse City is located just twenty miles east of Dallas and ten miles east of Rockwall, TX. While our setting feels small town (with a city population of 14,000), the population of our three-country area is just over 1,000,000. We’re filled with families with young children who enjoy small town life, but many of whom work in greater Dallas.
The Quest Church is unique. We leverage music to break down barriers and capture attention. Our target audience is unchurched people. They don’t know Christian songs or listen to Christian music. Our Christian music is like speaking a foreign language to them. So we leverage songs they would hear on the radio stations they actually listen to as a way to capture their attention and draw them into the conversation.
Our teaching style is conversational and practical. We acknowledge that unbelievers are in the room and attempt to draw them into the conversation by talking about things that believers and unbelievers are interested in.
The role of Worship Arts Pastor will include overseeing sound, media, video streaming and video production.
We’re looking for someone that is loyal, honest, hard-working, faithful, trustworthy, fun-loving, and thick-skinned (not easily offended)… a real team player. Our staff is like an elite military unit. We stand together, fight battles together, fight for each other, have each other’s backs, play together, laugh together and cry together. We strive to be good soldiers who are willing and able to endure hardship for our King. We hold each other up and help each other up. You’ll need to have the ability to learn, grow, and adapt with a growing, developing, expanding church and ministry.
Our perfect candidate probably has at least three years of full-time experience on a paid church staff, strong vocal skills, proficiency in playing keyboard and/or guitar with the ability to lead while playing. Some multimedia and video experience required. You’ll also need to have a good knowledge of music theory and the ability to transpose and arrange music. Your ability to develop and equip other musicians is critical.

We want to do the very best we can to communicate with you during your search. This page will allow you to see all of the current job openings that we are working on as well as the current status of each opening. You can check this page often as it is the definitive place that we update our work. We share regular updates here on each position rather than sending an email notification. Below are some additional questions and answers that we receive from candidates often.
If we ask on a Likert scale (1 to 10)… all we get is 4s, 5s, and 6s. Everyone gravitates toward the middle. We ask churches the exact same questions. Same yes/no. We ask yes/no questions to get gut reactions and it really does work to get a quick, initial synopsis of what kind of church you would be good in. We’re trying to find an initial 30,000-foot level fit in four areas: theology, ministry philosophy, personality, and skills/abilities. So… as much as you may hate answering yes or no, they really do work for us and may very well help us find you someplace that might be a great future fit.
The great thing about our approach is that once you’ve filled out your profile and the assessments, you are automatically considered for all the open positions and churches that we are currently working with (or will be working with in the future). This is good news because it means that we will constantly be attempting to match your profile and assessments with an opening and church that would be a great potential match for you. Of course, we attempt to match according to your position category, your denomination, your relocation preference, plus your overall profile, resume and assessment answers.
Working with a staffing company like Chemistry Staffing is a little different than working with a specific church. When you add your profile to our system (even if it was for a particular position), we try to match you with not just the individual church you applied to, but also other churches that we may be working with. While you may be interested in a particular church, it could be that your assessment and profile did not match what the church was looking for. If and when we find a potential match for you, we will reach out to you to have a personal one-on-one initial interview.
We’re constantly signing on new churches and positions. In fact, many of our candidates are actually ‘passively’ searching, meaning they fill out a profile so that we can be watching for potential great fits in the future. That might be next week or next year. We encourage you to keep your profile active in our database. We’ll only contact you when/if we find a church that would be a great potential healthy fit for YOU.
The short answer is… no one… unless we first ask your permission. We don’t post your information anywhere. We don’t sell your data. We simply keep it in our internal database until we find what we think might be a good match for you. And when we do, we first reach out to you to have an actual conversation, talk about the church and position, and gauge your interest BEFORE we ever submit your name or resume to a church.
We work with a few churches at a time and we reach out to you when we think we find a church that matches your theology, personality, philosophy of ministry, and skills and abilities based on your assessments, profile and resume. Sometimes that can take a little time. That’s the power of having your information in our database for the long-term. We don’t guarantee to find anyone a job. Our role is to try to match you up with one of the churches that we’re working with. But we’re just a small piece of the puzzle. If you are actively searching for a new ministry position, don’t ever put all your eggs in one basket. We’ll be in contact when we find something we think will be a great fit for you. In the meantime, we encourage you to take responsibility for your personal job search. You can always find a great number of positions that are new each day at websites like ChurchStaffing.com.
We fully agree with Dr. Thom Rainer when he says that few pastors make it to the ‘fruitful’ years of ministry… around the five-year mark. This happens many times because they were never a good match, to begin with, or because the church and the pastor don’t have a good, healthy ministry plan to work on the same page. Our approach is to strategically work with local church leaders to find a healthy, long-term staff fit that will actually move the dial when it comes to effective local ministry. (That means that we’d like to see you stay at your next church for AT LEAST five years).
We don’t have any full-time positions that are open. We are always looking for individuals that have their own personal network that they can work with to provide referrals. If that’s something you’d like to discuss, let me know and I can get you some additional information on that.
