Job Description

Arapaho UMC is looking for the right person to lead us in developing our Worship and Music Ministries. We are seeking to offer creative, intentional, authentic worship that features the many gifts of our congregation.

Ideal candidates would have technical skills associated with classical worship styles (conducting a choir, knowledge of hymnody and liturgy, etc.) as well as creative gifts to develop thematic worship services that incorporate various musical styles.

At AUMC, we have one worship service, and our goal is to continue developing our unique style that embraces traditional and modern and everything in between; we love Bach and Bob Dylan, hymns and The Highwomen. As a diverse and LGBTQ+-affirming congregation, it is important that our worship reflect the beautiful tapestry of people who call AUMC “home.”
