Church of the Saviour is seeking a faithful, skilled, and visionary leader to be our Director of Music and Organist to oversee the traditional music ministry of the church with enthusiastic participants of all ages. Our Director will work closely with and under the supervision of our Lead Pastor and will supervise music staff. We are excited to welcome the person who will lead us in achieving a vision of music ministry that will build on a lasting legacy and lead us into the future.

Church of the Saviour is a dynamic, multiracial congregation of the United Methodist Church located in Cleveland Heights, Ohio.

We are an 1,100 member Christian community committed to growing deeper in faith and pursuing God’s hope for every life. We live out our discipleship through five essential practices: we worship, grow, serve, give, and invite for the sake of Christ. Traditional worship takes place in our inspiring French Gothic sanctuary with a 1928 Austin organ (expanded and updated with a new console in 2014), and in the beautiful Myers Chapel with a 1950 Mӧller.
Well-qualified candidates will be exceptional musicians with an advanced degree and prior experience in leading worship, with a strong commitment to Christian faith and leadership. Salary range is $60,000 – $70,000. We invite you to review the detailed job description for further details. To apply, please send a letter of interest and résumé to email@example.com.
