What We're Looking For

New Hope Community Church is looking for a new Pastor of Worship Ministry. Our current Pastor of Worship has transitioned as the Lead Pastor. New Hope has a solid reputation for quality music and worship, and we are excited to see how God will use new leadership to take our existing program into the future with new and creative ideas. New Hope is a theologically conservative church, but we attract many people from a diverse variety of backgrounds from unchurched to Pentecostal and Liturgical. Our style of worship is definitely contemporary and participatory. Our desire is that the next Pastor of Worship Ministry will not only be a skilled musician, but will also be a strong leader who is able to shepherd, teach, and most importantly has a deep love for Jesus and for seeing others grow in their love for Him
