Minister of Music — an Opportunity

Published on Aug 21st, 2018 by Webminister | 0

A progressive, inclusive and loving congregation of Nelson United Church is seeking a Minister of Music, a skilled musician who can play the organ, the piano and direct our choirs.

Nelson United Church is the proud owner of a Keates Pipe Organ installed in our sanctuary in 1967, a Yamaha grand piano and a set of handbells. The Minister of Music will be responsible for the overall music leadership of the congregation, providing direction to the chancel and the handbell choirs. Worship planning occurs in a collegial manner with the Minister and other worship participants, thus hymns and worship music will be chosen collaboratively. Music is important to our congregation and we appreciate a variety of musical styles: contemporary church music, traditional/classical church music, Iona Community and Taizé music, and world music. Special events, such as concerts performed by the church choirs or other individuals and groups, music workshops, or singing events, will be planned in consultation with the Minister.

This position is for 15 hours per week; salary will be determined by experience and based on salary schedule set by The Royal Canadian College of Organists.

All interested candidates, please send a cover letter and resume by the closing date of September 30, 2018.

To request a full job description, please contact the Ministry & Personnel Committee, c/o Jody Dudley
