  • Collaborate with Northaven’s organist/pianist to deliver a complete choral and instrumental repertoire that seeks excellence and relevance, incorporates  a variety of styles, both historic and contemporary, and contributes to a fully integrated worship experience
  • Create and/or host special music events for the Dallas community
