NWUC is seeking to hire a Music Minister/Director and a Pianist/Organist
Both our Minister of Music and our Pianist/Organist have retired. These roles may be separate or a combined position depending on skills and experience.
Due to Covid-19, our worship services are currently on-line and include only 4 pre-recorded piano/organ pieces and hymns per week. We hope to return to live services in the sanctuary later this year if conditions warrant that and church leadership decides to return.
Due to the virus pandemic, choral singing is not considered a safe practice and our choir program has been suspended indefinitely. We hope to resume the program when conditions are deemed safe – and at that point we will need someone with skills and experience to lead the choir. For the foreseeable future we are focused on replacing the Pianist/Organist position, but preference will be given to those with qualifications to also lead our choir program.
Our Music Minister/Director will lead and direct the church music program to include choral, vocal, and instrumental expressions of the experience of faith. Candidates must have strong choral directing background and proven ability to inspire and motivate others to express their faith through music. We have a talented and dedicated 12-18-member adult choir with a large repertoire of anthems. We seek candidates with a visionary plan to collaborate with the Pastor and Music Committee to lead the music program, which also includes helping manage a very successful community outreach concert series, Music with a Mission. This is a contracted, part-time salaried position, requiring approximately 10-12 hours per week for planning, preparation and services. The salary is commensurate with abilities and experience. Please send a cover letter and resume to Rev. Debra Girard: Pastordebbienwucc@gmail.com
Our Pianist/Organist provides piano and/or organ accompaniment for Sunday worship and other special services, including weddings, funerals, etc. He/She accompanies the weekly adult choir rehearsals and special music during the summer. Candidates must have excellent piano skills; organ experience is also preferred. This is a contracted, part-time salaried position, requiring approximately 6-8 hours per week for planning, preparation and services. The salary is commensurate with abilities and experience. Please send cover letter and resume to Rev. Debra Girard: Pastordebbienwucc@gmail.com
Office Hours: Mon-Thu 9 am - 12 noon
In the event that our worship service is cancelled due to weather we will post this information on our website, Facebook page, WCSH 6 TV & WMTW 8 TV.
