To Whom It May Concern:

The Session of Missio Dei Church has opened the following position to qualified candidates:

Director of Music

Missio Dei Church is a theologically conservative, evangelical Presbyterian church (PCA) located in Manhattan, Illinois. Our church's mission is to be a church with passionate faith in Jesus Christ that sacrificially loves, serves those in need, and draws people into an ever-deepening relationship with God. 

Our Sunday worship services are currently attended by 75 to 125 people. We have always been a strong family-oriented church, and enjoy a variety of ages in the congregation. The majority of the congregation are young to middle-aged families. For more information about us, you can peruse our website:

Our worship style is a blended mix of contemporary worship songs and timeless hymns set in a flexible and conversant yet reformed liturgy. A typical worship service arrangement could include 2 to 3 vocalists, acoustic guitar, keyboard, and percussion.  There’s a sense amongst the team and leadership that a new level of recruiting, onboarding and training is going to be required to move the ministry forward. Our worship ministry members are longing for leadership that has the vision and capacity to take them to the next level.

This part-time position is ideal for those individuals who are considering full-time vocational ministry. The position requires an individual to be musically gifted, able to lead and develop worship teams, do administrative and social media work, and be a theological thinker who can work out his/her reformed theology in real-life kind of ways. The individual should expect to be working closely with the lead pastor in the day-to-day duties: the exciting, mundane, and frustrating.

The Director of Music may be from another denominational background but must be a professing evangelical Christian and in general support of the reformed faith.
