Sample Music Job Descriptions

As more and more churches hire worship coordinators and directors of music, they are also writing job descriptions. A good job description can serve as a road map for the person entering the position and for others who engage in the process of worship planning and leadership.

Occasionally we receive requests for sample job descriptions. We have collected six different job descriptions that you are welcome to tailor to your own situation.

As you prayerfully consider your needs, you will note that in each of these descriptions, the work is more than a list of tasks. It is also about serving, shepherding, mentoring, and enabling others to use their gifts.

#1: Director of Music

#2: Director of Music

#3: Pastoral Musician

#4: Director of Worship and Music

#5: Director of Music and Worship Arts

#6: Minister of Music, Worship and Fine Arts
