The Role: Worship Director
Meet Northwest Church
At Northwest Church, our mission is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus.
What does this mean?
Well, a couple of things. It means that our desire is for you to come to know and follow Jesus Christ, not a set of rules or rituals. We hope to create a space that is comfortable, welcoming, and engaging for you to be able to do this. Every Sunday, we gather to connect to God and each other. We offer a variety of musical styles so that everyone can feel comfortable. We also have a time of teaching from one of our pastors. The environment is casual and laid back. If you don’t consider yourself a religious person you will probably fit right in, because we don’t consider ourselves “religious people.”
If you don’t consider yourself a follower of Jesus and are just exploring the idea of faith, there’s no pressure, and you are in the right place! It’s a big decision. We would love for you to spend time with us as you explore what it means to be a follower of Jesus. We would consider it a privilege to be able to help you along in your faith journey.
If you have crossed the line and do consider yourself a follower of Jesus, then you are also in the right place. We want to come alongside you and encourage you. We have a wide range of ministries and programs designed to give you the support and tools you need to experience the life that Jesus has to offer. We also hope that you will partner with us in our mission to reach other people. The gift of salvation is too good to keep to ourselves!
