Annual Conference Worship Designer(s)

published 9/29/2020

If you ever participated in worship at Annual Conference and thought, "I would love to create that experience," now is your chance!
We are seeking a person or pair of people to design worship experiences during Annual Conference 2021, which could be virtual or in-person. This position is open to both clergy and laity.  
We see the annual conference session as a culture-shaping event for our people, and worship is consistently rated as one of the most meaningful parts of annual conference. It sets the theme and tone of our gathering and it also gives people a chance to experience new ways of worshiping that they can take back to their own congregations. To be honest, it is a lot of work, but it is work that has a significant impact.
The specific responsibilities include:

  • Craftingthree to five significant worship experiences incorporating required elements, conference theme, and selected scripture
  • Writing liturgy that speaks to a large spectrum of congregants
  • Selecting music from approved publishers or copyright guidelines
  • Recruiting musicians and speakers (budget provided)
  • If in-person, coordinating logistics of worship including rehearsals, decorations, worship elements
  • If virtual, recording segments and compiling worship videos
  • Participating in Sessions meetings for planning
  • Meeting with director of ministries and bishop
Compensation: Worship designer/s receive a stipend as a token of appreciation for this labor of love!
If interested, email a letter of interest by Oct. 31, 2020.
