Good Shepherd Lutheran Church
in Novato is developing a new, contemporary worship service for our community. We are looking for a contemporary music director to work closely with our pastor, John Beckman, to select songs, conduct rehearsals, and lead the musical portion of our 11 a.m. Sunday worship service. Ideally, this person will be a strong singer and also an instrumentalist (piano or guitar). Being a member of the Lutheran faith is not a necessity, but having a strong sense of worship, and worship through music, is. This position pays $25 per hour for 5+ hours per week (weekly Sunday worship and several rehearsals per month) and can begin immediately.
Good Shepherd is a sweet church engaged in forging a new beginning after the retirement, a few years ago, of our long-time (32 years) pastor. One of our main ministries is Good Shepherd Lutheran School, preschool through 8th grade, which offers rigorous academics in a loving, Christian environment. The church and school have a history of a strong commitment to and love of music. We want to create a vibrant, joyful, contemporary music program to augment our already strong organist, choir, and bell ensemble, and to open a new door to God for younger seekers.
