  • Seeking Minister/Director of Music (Ravensworth)

    Ravensworth Baptist Church in Annandale, VA is seeking a salaried part-time Minister or Director of music (seminary experience is preferred but not required) to guide the congregation in its ministry to each other, our community, and the world by providing leadership and support for the church’s music ministry. The Director of Music will coordinate with church staff, volunteers, and musicians from the wider community to create a rich and varied atmosphere of worshipful music from many styles and genres. We are seeking someone who can bring new life to traditional music and a sense of the sacred to newer music. The Director will lead the adult choir in rehearsal and worship, but also incorporate special music and more participatory congregational singing. Successful candidates will have a passion, not only for the music, but for the way that music enriches the worship service.
