Contemporary Worship Minister


1st L.G. (First Baptist Church of Locust Grove, GA) is seeking a full-time Contemporary Worship Minister.

1st L.G. is a church about 30 minutes south of Atlanta, in the 8th fastest growing county in the nation, that is committed to reaching our rapidly growing community in Biblically relevant ways. We are a theologically conservative church that is determined to be current, innovative, and effective in connecting with people where they are and helping them become passionate followers of Jesus!

Our musical expression is Christ-centered worship along the styles of Passion, Elevation, Hillsong, Young and Free, etc.

We are looking for a creative contemporary worship minister to join our team and help us as we strive to excel in our worship environments and further impact our community with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We believe there is great potential and a wonderful opportunity for someone who is willing to embrace a challenge and who desires to be innovative in creating an authentic worship environment that draws people to Jesus.

·        Are you interested in bringing excellence in all aspects related to creating an engaging worship environment?

·        Are you a flexible risk-taker who desires to work alongside a passionate pastor and joyful staff as you fulfill the Great Commission in a growing community?

If you’re excited about reaching people who don’t know Jesus and developing passionate followers of Christ, then 1St L.G. might be the place for you!
