Job Description:

International Baptist Church (IBC) is a unique expression of the body of Christ.

The vast majority of churches reflect one nationality, culture, or ethnicity, but in a refreshing contrast, IBC is composed of believers from more than 50 different nations. Scripture clearly teaches that heaven will celebrate every nation, tribe, people and tongue gathered around the throne to worship the Lamb of God (Rev. 7:9). Our challenge is why wait to arrive in heaven to experience heaven right here on earth? In the midst of our ethnic diversity in IBC, there is a spiritual unity in the person of Christ that transcends all other barriers. When we worship together, serve together, and live together as a community of believers and love each other, the world will know that we are His disciples (John 13:34).


We are looking for a Worship Pastor to provide the leadership in the ministry to plan, organize, develop and steward the resources of the Music Ministry in support of the Senior Pastor in our worship services under the IBC vision, which is:

“IBC is God's home for the nations that seeks to unite all people to Christ in love by making disciples for the glory of God”

The Worship Pastor is responsible for leading worship services to ensure that the music and worship is well co-ordinated with the Message preached and to provide opportunities for worshippers, who are of diverse cultures and languages, to be involved in coming together as one Body in Christ to experience the presence of God.
