Maranatha exists to help people experience God’s presence, engage in relationships, equip for ministry, and expand the Kingdom of God. Maranatha is a multi-cultural and multi-generational church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana that is experiencing growth and revival. Located in the heart of Baton Rouge, Maranatha seeks to be a vibrant, life-giving and distinctly Pentecostal church.

Maranatha seeks a candidate for the dual role of Worship and Youth Pastor who will bring a fresh passion to the ministry with a strong foundation. The Worship Leader will lead a diverse community of followers to engage God through musical worship, and ensure that all Maranatha worship experiences are executed with excellence through the recruiting, training, and development of leaders and volunteers. The successful Worship Leader will use the various elements of worship to bring the congregation into God’s presence, and encourage and guide worshippers. The ideal candidate will have proven experience creatively proclaiming the gospel, thereby making disciples and bringing glory to God.

The music ministry is an integral part of the Sunday morning experience and is valued as more than simply the warm-up act for the message. The purpose of the worship team is to “engage a diverse church to engage God through musical worship.” Maranatha values racial reconciliation and desires to be a multi-ethnic church. The musical worship must embrace a variety in musical styles, and the current set lists move freely between Hillsong, Israel Houghton, Jesus Culture, William McDowell, and hymns. Although formal education is not a predetermining factor for this position, it is likely that they will hold a relevant degree from an accredited college or university, with 2-3 years of relevant experience to scale.

The prospective candidate will bear the following core skills and experiences necessary to successfully execute the role of Music & Youth Pastor:
• A proven track record of leading worship successfully in an appropriate church context
