Music Director

North Kingstown United Methodist Church is a vibrant church seeking a new Music Director to provide music as appropriate to the style and format of worship during our Sunday morning service throughout the year.  This includes, but is not limited to, piano and organ music.

The Music Director has principal authority in matters relating to choir supervision, discipline, selection of choral music, and oversight of volunteers and other details pertaining to the musical programs of the Church.  The Music Director works cooperatively and closely with the Pastor and the Worship Development Committee in the planning of music, so the unity and integrity of worship themes are maintained.  The Music Director meets with the Worship Development Committee to discuss, evaluate and plan worship experiences in the church, particularly planning for the Lent/Easter and Advent/Christmas seasons.

The Music Director directs the Chancel Choir during the Sunday morning service, conducts one “warm up” rehearsal with the choir each Sunday morning and one post-service rehearsal from September through mid-June.  The Music Director directs the music when children/youth choir(s) may perform with the Chancel Choir and coordinates the music program for services when the Hand Bell Choir performs. 

The Music Director reports to the Board of Trustees the condition and need for any maintenance of the Church organ and piano and is responsible for the development and submission of the music budget to the Finance Committee.

Music is integral to the worship experience.  We encourage our Music Directors to seek not only opportunities for personal professional development, but new and innovative ways to translate and spread the Gospel via music in its many forms.  

If you are moved to use your musical talents in the service of Christ, we invite you to contact us for more information about this salaried staff position with our church family.

Inquiries should be addressed to:
