Hiring: Worship Leader

Do you want to lead a worship team or know someone who does?

Good News Church is a church plant that started with a team of five in the summer of 2015. Our mission is to surrender all of life to Jesus and invite others to do the same. We enjoy a blend of old hymns, new hymns, and contemporary worship music.

We are a young church uniquely blessed with a diverse worship team that includes guitar, piano, cajon box drum, bass, vocalists. That being said, our team has limited experience leading worship or being part of a worship team. So there is a great opportunity for someone to step in and develop this group as a team!
