Job Description for Worship Pastor

A worship pastor (sometimes referred to as a “worship leader” or simply a “pastor”) serves their church and its congregation. Some larger churches have more than one pastor, and in this context the worship pastor is generally responsible for leading each week’s worship service. This job includes writing and delivering sermons, as well as many other weekly responsibilities. These include selecting hymns to be sung during the service and coordinating with any bands/musicians who work with the church, and often attending practice with these musicians as well. Worship pastors are often expected to be available to their congregants for many types of pastoral care; in a given week, this could include events which range from weddings and baptisms to graveside services and grief counseling.
