519church, a campus of the Apex UMC family of faith communities, is currently searching for a new worship leader. Our worship is contemporary in nature, exploring a number of genres. Sometimes we sound a little 80s, sometimes a little folksy, sometimes we sit in that rich liturgical space that is so needed in the current contemporary worship culture. In all things we aim to be genuine—excellent, but not unnecessarily polished. Our whole team tries not to take ourselves too seriously, so that we can take our work seriously. We are a portable church that is motivated and continues to flourish. We would love someone who is committed to the work of the church (not just musically) and will thrive in our mission-centric environment.
