Primary Accompanist Job Posting
Purpose: To provide piano accompaniment for church services throughout the year and to serve as primary church musician.
Our Culture: Worship at Cross of Hope is not defined by a style of worship but an attitude of the heart. We call upon Jesus to help us create a safe place and space where people from all walks of life and faith can be genuine, honest with themselves, our Lord, and each other. We encourage and teach that worship is an act of offering to be lived out each day. We offer our lives, time, possessions, and gifts both inside and outside the walls of the church. Our worship styles grow out of the passions and gifts of the people who gather. Our approach is organic in the sense that our style of worship changes as God’s Spirit works in and through our community. It is the breath of the Holy Spirit that gives our worship life and it is the Holy Spirit that sends us out with an attitude of worship in our world.
