McCord Road Christian Church, Sylvania, OH
Worship Arts Pastor
McCord Road Christian Church (MRCC) encourages people to love God, love one another, and get the message out about Jesus within Northwest Ohio and throughout the world. The church will celebrate its 50th anniversary this year, and average weekly attendance is about 600 people. Strong commitments to children’s ministry, student ministry, outreach, and congregational care have served as the foundations of growth over time, and these continue to be vibrant ministries today. The church has both a traditional service and two contemporary services meant to offer engaging and inspiring worship experiences. The teaching style is authentic, grace-centered, and focused on helping people understand and apply the Bible to life. The future of the church is bright, and they are only beginning to see what God can do.
The church envisions that the new Worship Arts Pastor will be a collaborative leader who has a heart for God and for people. This person will be the main worship leader for contemporary services and one who can equip and empower leaders for traditional services. In addition to engaging others into heartfelt worship, the successful candidate will be a team builder who can develop, train, disciple, and encourage others to reach their full potential. The Worship Arts Pastor will be the catalyst for growth and creative initiatives throughout the Worship Arts Ministry (currently including musicians, sound/video technicians, ushers, drama, room/set design, communion prep, and a creative team).
MRCC is located in the heart of Sylvania, Ohio. Its facility was originally built in 1970 and underwent various renovations and additions over time. Construction of the latest addition (completed in 2009) added over 25,000 sq. ft. including a children’s wing, youth wing, adult classrooms, gymnasium, kitchen, expanded lobby, and expanded worship space. This project greatly expanded McCord Road’s ability to serve their congregation and reach out to their community.
