Opportunity Type: Other (explain below) 1-year interim Music Director at a small Episcopal church.
Description of Opportunity (Please feel free to include website links if applicable): Job Posting
Director of Music
Church of Our Saviour
21 Marathon Street
Arlington, MA 02474

June 1, 2016

Church of Our Saviour is a small, vibrant Episcopal church with about 40-50 people on a Sunday. Socially, theologically and liturgically progressive, our 10am Rite II Eucharist draws not only on the Episcopal 1982 hymnal, but also on all other collections published by the Episcopal church in the last 25 years, and also music from the Iona community and many other sources. Our monthly intergenerational service and other special services include music that is appropriate for all ages to sing together. We use both piano and organ for worship and encourage the participations of musicians in the community, young and old. We worship in the round.

The people of Church of Our Saviour are open to new ideas. There is a great deal of creativity in the parish, expressed in the visual arts, science, singing, and playing a variety of musical instruments. Diversity in the congregation is valued, and there are a number of lgbt, interfaith and multiracial households. Faith is rich and real.

After the retirement of our Music Director of 21 years, Church of Our Saviour is in a period of discernment about its music style and leadership. We are therefore looking for an interim Director of Music qualified to lead and choose music of varying styles, and able to work with musicians of varying abilities, so that our worship reflects the diversity, spirituality and creativity of our community.

Compensation is dependent on education and experience level of the successful applicant. Flexibility, ability to direct a small choir (about 7 persons) and work with musicians are a must. Knowledge of Episcopal liturgy and music would be very helpful.

Interested candidates should send a cover letter and resume to Church.of.our.saviour.arlington(at)gmail.com.

The Director of Music provides the following services and abides by the following duties and responsibilities:

1) The Director is responsible for planning and implementing the church’s music program, directly accountable to, and under the supervision of, the Rector of the Parish in accord with the canons of the Episcopal Church (USA).

2) The Director provides piano, organ or other suitable instrumental music for the regularly scheduled Sunday morning worship services for the twelve-month calendar year. The Director also provides for special services during the calendar year, including, but not necessarily limited to Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, The Great Vigil of Easter, and any other special services as agreed upon by the Rector and the Director.

3) The Director supervises and directs a service choir, soloists, or instrumentalists to provide music at the regular Sunday morning worship service, and at other special services as appropriate and agreed upon by the Rector and the Director. Such choir, soloists, or instrumentalists perform from the Sunday after Labor Day through mid-June. On Sundays from mid-June through Labor Day, the Director shall ensure a continuing program of music and shall encourage soloists, ensembles, or instrumentalists as available and appropriate to participate in Sunday morning services in lieu of a choir.

4) As appropriate and available, the Director provides opportunities for soloists, instrumentalists, ensemble players, singers, and people of all ages to participate in the music program and, therefore, encourages use of the talent from within the congregation’s membership. As necessary, the Director is available to accompany such supplemental musicians. The Director also has discretion within the available music budget and with approval of the Rector to employ professional or semi-professional musicians for special occasions. The Director selects hymns, responses, canticles, and other music for use during weekly services; all selections, however, are subject to the final approval of the Rector.

5) The Director oversees the condition and maintenance of all musical instruments owned or employed by the parish and has authority to enter into contracts and other service obligations to meet such ends, provided all such contracts and obligations comport with the available resources budgeted for such purposes.

6) The Director has primary responsibility for the selection and ordering of new or supplemental choral and instrumental music and shall enter into contracts and obligations to such ends, provided all such contracts and obligations comport with the available resources budgeted for such purposes.

7) When on vacation or otherwise absent, the Director shall arrange for appropriate substitute musicians unless other suitable arrangements have been made and approved in consultation with the Rector.

8) The Director meets regularly with the rector and the Liturgy Committee to plan liturgy and worship.

9) The Director plays for weddings and funerals as needed or finds a substitute as needed. (Weddings and funerals are paid for by the families and provide additional compensation.)

Vacation Days and Sick Days are by contract, generally 4 vacation Sundays in each year and 2 Sick Days.

Average Visible Hours (in church, performing or rehearsing): 3 hours per week;
Generally one Sunday morning choir rehearsal and the Sunday service.

Average estimated hours per week for planning, preparation, and practicing (does not include hours for home practice): 7 hours

Total average hours estimated for the position: 10-12 hours per week.
Start Date: 08/01/2016
End Date: 07/31/2017
Compensation: TBD

Director of Music at Congregational Church of Topsfield needed

Name: Robert Hardy
Email: rhardy(at)bellwetherfoodgroup.com
Phone: 617.281.5175
Opportunity Type: Job (Arts Administration or similar)
Description of Opportunity (Please feel free to include website links if applicable): Director of Music; Congregational Church of Topsfield
The Congregational Church of Topsfield seeks to hire a Director of Music (DOM). The DOM will be responsible for the quality and substance of the music used during the church's worship. The DOM will be assisted by the church's organist during rehearsals of the Chancel Choir and at worship.
The Congregational Church is an Open and Affirming church of the United Church of Christ. The church has approximately 270 members. It is located on the Town Common in the center of Topsfield, approximately 25 miles north of Boston. The church has active volunteer Chancel and Bell Choirs and an ensemble-in-residence agreement with Music at Eden's Edge (a private chamber music ensemble) whose members provide music from time to time. The church has a fairly extensive library of music for both choirs.
Job Description:
The DOM reports to the Senior Pastor, is responsible to the Board of Deacons, and supervises the organist. The DOM is expected to work with the Board of Deacons (and the Music Committee, a subcommittee of the Board of Deacons) and the Senior Pastor regarding all aspects of the music program. Specific job responsibilities include:
1) Collaborate with the Senior and Associate Pastor to select hymns and other music for Sundays and special worship services such as Homecoming (September), Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, and Easter.

2) Conduct weekly rehearsals of the Chancel Choir and Bell Choir from the first week of September to early/mid-June. Rehearsals occur on Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings before worship.

3) Direct the Chancel Choir and Bell Choir at worship.

4) Attend weekly staff meetings. Meet from time to time with the Board of Deacons at its request.

5) Develop a program of music to be performed at the church's annual Christmas Concert. (The concert is scheduled to coincide with the Topsfield Holiday Walk, typically the first Saturday of December.)

6) In collaboration with the Music Committee, work to expand congregational and community participation in the music program.


7) In collaboration with the Board of Children and Youth, choose occasional musical offerings for children and youth to sing in worship, conduct rehearsals, and direct the performances. Currently, the number of children and youth available to participate is small but growing. The current expectation is that children and youth will perform at the Christmas concert and participate up to two times per year in worship services.

8) Solicit, organize, and support performances by vocalists and instrumentalists for Sunday summer worship. In the absence of such performers, the DOM is responsible for seeing that there is at least a prelude, offertory selection, and postlude for the service. (Typically, the organist handles the prelude and postlude. The organist is also responsible for playing the hymns.)

9) Hire extra musicians for special events within the limits of the church's budget.

10) Maintain and oversee storage and care of all musical instruments and equipment.

11) Perform other duties as agreed upon with the Senior Pastor and the Board of Deacons.
Qualifications:
1) The DOM must have experience, education, and/or training in musical performance or musical education. A Bachelor’s degree or higher level degree in the field is preferred. Must possess the ability to conduct vocal and bell ensembles. Ability to play a keyboard instrument is preferred.

2) The DOM should have good knowledge of sacred music of varied genres.

3) The DOM must be capable of interacting with both adults and children with a range of musical abilities and knowledge of music theory, and be able to encourage and teach participants to improve the quality of their contribution.

4) The DOM should be a person possessing a patient character and love of music. Because this is a church position, the DOM must understand and be committed to the value of worship.
Terms:
1) This is a part time position of approximately 20 hours per week on average from early September to mid-June. The summer (mid-June through August) typically requires fewer hours, as agreed upon, to reflect the lack of choir activity during that time.

2) The annual salary for the DOM will be $25,000 paid biweekly. Social Security and both State and Federal income tax will be withheld and a W-2 will be issued annually.

3) The DOM has access to an office within the church offices at the Emerson Center. This office includes file space, a computer, and desk space.

4) Annual performance reviews occur near the end of each calendar year.

5) The term of the contract between the church and DOM is one year with automatic renewal each year. The contract can be terminated for any reason by either party with 60 days’ notice. (The church may terminate for cause at any time.)

6) The church will provide vacation leave at full salary of four weeks. The timing of leave will be approved by the Senior Pastor. The DOM will assist in obtaining a substitute as necessary.

Seeking worship leader at New Roads Catholic Community

Who we are:

We are New Roads Catholic Community in Belmont, MA. We’re two Roman Catholic parishes in the Archdiocese of Boston, St. Joseph and St. Luke, working together to reinvigorate our Church and faith community by reaching out to those who have become disconnected from the Church and by challenging our members to grow as intentional disciples. We’re assembling a team of enthusiastic, driven, and talented people who want to join us in this awesome mission of rebuilding our Church!


What you'll do: 

This newly created full-time role will be a crucial part of our team and will help us to establish a music and worship ministry for both parishes centered around our shared vision:

  • Help to create and lead worship experiences that draw people into meaningful, transforming worship, and that are particularly geared to reaching unchurched or formerly churched people in our community.
  • Develop and continually update a repertoire of current contemporary Christian praise and worship music, particularly focusing on music that: is appealing and accessible to the unchurched; leads people into deeper worship; supports the message; and is in the vernacular, in terms of lyrics, instrumentation, and sound.
  • Build and expand the worship team and its range of talent by recruiting, auditioning, and on-boarding new talent, both paid and volunteer.
  • Help select music and coordinate creative elements of worship gatherings, including multimedia preparation and presentation.
  • Prepare chord charts and lead sheets for new music.
  • Direct all weekly rehearsals necessary to facilitate worship in services.
  • Provide lead vocals and serve as lead instrumentalist for Mass and other worship experiences.

  • In conjunction with other team members, work to develop a student band ministry.
  • Participate as an active member of the pastoral team; attend team meetings and contribute to team projects.
  • Who you are:

You are a highly motivated worship leader who is passionate about the power of worship to help people enter into a life-changing relationship with God. You have demonstrated success in leading contemporary Christian praise and worship music, with preferably at least two years of experience in a Catholic setting. You can provide the vision and leadership to develop a transformative worship experience and raise up new leaders for the future. You have strong communication, organizational, and technical skills and are experienced in working with vocalists, musicians, and supporting technologies. You have demonstrated proficiency in playing guitar or piano, with the ability to lead while playing. You are attentive to detail and care about the details of crafting excellent worship experiences. You are creative, flexible, and have a great sense of humor. You love to think outside the box and come up with creative solutions. Although you enjoy working with others, you also know how to work independently and get things done. You are able to admit mistakes, learn new tools, and take on new challenges. You have a willingness to support the mission of the Catholic Church and are eager to join a dynamic and ambitious team.

Details:

  • Date: April 2016
  • Title: Worship Leader
  • Reports To: Associate Minister
