Video Director

Position Summary
The Video Producer will first and foremost be a spiritual leader above reproach. (I Timothy 3) The number one responsibility of an effective and faithful church staff person/pastor is godliness, humility, and integrity. Nothing gets in the way of faithful ministry within a church more than a leader compromising any of these responsibilities. As a result, a major part of this job description is to model the highest level of godliness through spiritual disciplines of prayer, Scripture reading, devotional reading, journaling, and/or fasting.
