Ministry description

Interested in joining a changing and growing church? PEFC is looking for the next worship arts director that will help lead and cultivate a vibrant ministry primarily through music. We believe that worship ministry is an essential part of the believer's everyday growth and trust in Jesus and a great way to speak to the hearts of those who are far from Jesus. Worship is like a language and we feel called to use it to God's glory both in the church and outside of it.

The primary function of the director of worship arts is to provide vision, equipping and oversight to the worship arts ministries. Ultimately, this role is to help carry out Princeton Evangelical Church’s mission of “growing together in Christ.” This person's primary mission will be to help facilitate an environment of worship, primarily through music, for weekly and special services to the glory of God (Ps 150).
