The Associate Worship Pastor is primarily responsible for leading and building the worship experience for our campus and church online attenders. (THIS IS NOT A REMOTE OPPORTUNITY)

At Life.Church, we exist to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ. It’s been our mission since 1996 and has guided us every day.

We are one church meeting in multiple locations, and we want to help you become the person God made you to be. 

The Life.Church Worship Team inspires and moves people towards Christ by creating spiritual experiences through story-telling and biblical truth. Worship is the musical expression of Life.Church. It’s the first part of a service that people experience and often the time they identify as what makes a campus “theirs.” It sets the stage for the message of the day, and it primes people for life change.

At Life.Church, we are passionate about reaching more people in more communities. We hire new team members to begin their journey at an existing Life.Church location so they can learn the culture and systems of our church from experienced pastors already on the team. Our hope is, as we continue to launch new locations, we can send pastors who are ready to lead on day one because of what they’ve learned at an existing location in preparation.
