The Role: Worship Arts Pastor

Christ Community Church WorshipMeet Christ Community Church:

Christ Community Church (CCC) in Tucson, AZ is a gospel-centered nondenominational church committed to following Jesus together with their lives. The people of CCC believe that the gospel is not simply the entry point into the Christian life but that it is also the foundation and power that shapes all we do as followers of Jesus Christ, both in our daily lives and in our experience as the corporate body of Christ.

Christ Community Church was established in 1952 by a traveling evangelist and five married couples. Today, it has grown deep roots in Tucson as a community that draws people in with a love for the Bible. 

Christ Community Church stands out in the Tucson community for its timeless commitment to expository preaching and upholding of sound doctrine. For more than six decades people have been drawn to the church because of its uncompromising stand on the Bible. This is what makes CCC unique in Tucson, and to some extent, unique in all of the United States. In an era when the Christian worldview is collapsing in America, and so many churches are willing to compromise God’s Word, CCC has refused to yield from the Bible as its final authority in all matters.

About the Worship Arts Pastor:

Christ Community Church is looking for the next Worship Arts Pastor who will lead the congregation in faithful corporate worship that is glorifying to God, musically rich, and biblically sound. 

Christ Community Church(CCC) is an elder-led, non-denominational church that draws 850 attendees to our two Sunday morning worship services. Musically, we aim to incorporate the best of hymnody and contemporary songs, and our worship services aim to make full use of Scripture reading, prayer, and congregational participation. Our weekly worship team is joined by our bi-monthly choir, monthly orchestra, regular youth involvement, and occasional children’s choir. The Worship Arts Pastor provides leadership for the music ministry as a whole, including the many volunteer teams required to carry out the weekly corporate worship of the church.

Because this role is largely pastoral in nature, CCC is looking for someone who fulfills the qualifications of leadership listed in 1 Timothy 3. He should proactively care for the spiritual needs of those involved in the worship ministry, and he should encourage the spiritual well-being of the congregation as a whole.

The Worship Arts Pastor position would fit best with someone who not only agrees with our Statement of Faith and our overall ministry values as a church, but also aligns with our general philosophy of worship. CCC’s worship values listed above aim to show their heart for congregational participation, theological faithfulness, and musical beauty.

CCC Tucson CrossWhat it's Like to Live in Tucson, AZ: 

Tucson, Arizona is a great place to settle down - it’s very family-friendly and is considered a midsize city of almost a million people. It offers big-city amenities with a small-town feel. Today, Tucson is a sprawling metro area in southern Arizona, but it first began as a small town. It has expanded over the surrounding area of the region of Arizona it is located in, inviting new residents to enjoy a low cost of living and a nationally recognized excellent university. But it also hasn’t forgotten its roots - there are many tangible and visible reminders of the region’s history and culture, including historic sites, statues recognizing important moments in its history, and even a site of a Native American village where the name Tucson comes from. People from all walks of life can be found here, and their cultures have left an impression on Tucson. Thanks to the large Latino community, holidays like Dia de Los Muertos bring a rich history and diversity to the area. 

If you love the mountains and all the outdoor adventures that come with living near them, Tucson is a place you’ll enjoy. Five ranges of minor mountains: the Santa Catalina Mountains and the Tortolita Mountains to the north, the Santa Rita Mountains to the south, the Rincon Mountains to the east, and the Tucson Mountains to the west make it a climber and hiker’s dream. It’s a happy city to be outside too - Tucson has 286+ sunny days every year and jaw-dropping desert sunsets of pinks, oranges, and purples! It is also a clean city - Tucson has high rankings when it comes to clean air. It’s been placed on a list of the 5 Cities with the Best Air Quality in the U.S. and ranked #1 for cleanest metropolitan areas in the country for 24-hour particle pollution by the American Lung Association. 

Tucson also has tons of resorts and spas, championship golf courses, and an impressive food scene. For an art appreciator, the city has highly-esteemed museums and galleries featuring work by world-renowned artists. The Tucson Museum of Art and The University of Arizona Museum of Art are a great way to spend an afternoon. Browse famous works by Franz Kline, Jackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko, or stop into the Center for Creative Photography and spend a while taking in photography works by greats such as Ansel Adams, Richard Avedon, and Edward Weston. 

The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is a great place to check out as well, which is a combined zoo, museum, and botanical garden to help visitors learn all about Tucson’s indigenous animals and plants of the Sonoran Desert. Tucson Symphony Orchestra and the Arizona Opera offer classical music buffs a creative escape into music for an evening as well, with many great and well-known performances coming to Tucson’s theater and orchestra. Overall, Tucson is a great place to visit, and an even better place to call home.
