Letter to the editor — Worship leaders needed

One of the greatest needs for many of our Alabama Baptist churches is bivocational or part-time worship leaders. I receive at least five calls or requests each week from churches needing someone to lead worship in their church.

Because of this we at the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions would like to develop a resumé database for part-time worship leaders to address the challenges.

Up to this point our office has resourced requests by word of mouth, personal relationships and directing requests toward associational missionaries, Baptist Campus Ministry centers and our Baptist schools. But those methods are not sufficient for the number of requests we are now receiving.

Most bivocational and part-time worship leaders, male and female, fall into these categories:

• Retired full-time worship leaders

• School musicians (band directors, choral directors and music teachers)

• College students

• Church members who have grown up in a music ministry but do not have formal training.

If you are open to the possibility of serving as a part-time or bivocational worship leader, then please contact me at khibbs@alsbom.org or 1-800-264-1225, ext. 217.

A resumé form can be downloaded from ALBaptistStaffing.org.
