    Job Description

    The Director of Worship and Religious Life is responsible for the management and operation of the Worship program at Bay View. In this role, the Director reports to the Executive Director and is responsible for the search and organization of speakers and religious lecturers for the Assembly season and its surrounding weeks.

    Although Bay View is a seasonal community, open from May through October, the position still requires year-round attention. The search for guest speakers and lecturers is primarily done in the off-season, to allow for travel plans to be made and the schedule of lecturers to be assembled.

    During the season, the Director of Worship and Religious Life is responsible for several different duties. In addition to leading Sunday worship, coordinating communion services at Crouse Chape, and guiding the different worship events, the Director is also responsible for outreach to the local community. This includes PR work for the Association in the form of written columns and submissions to the Association’s weekly Town Crier, as well as other local news publications.


    The Director of Worship shall be an ordained minister in good standing with a church-related judicatory. This position requires a strong administrative background and experience in overseeing a church worship program and religious life programming. This position also
    requires a pastor’s heart as evidenced by love, service and outreach to
    Bay View, its members, guests, and neighbors as we seek to glorify God in thought, word and deed. The Director of Worship should also be versed in the social justice tradition of Christian witness which entails “a life committed to compassion and justice for all people.

    Salary and Benefits:

    The starting salary range is $25,000-$30,000, depending on experience and qualifications. Since this is a seasonal position with limited work in the off season, the Worship Director is not eligible for other benefits.

    Housing is provided, gratis, in an association-owned cottage. Also, an administrative assistant is employed to assist the Worship Director. The Director is also supported by the administrative staff, a dedicated nine member Worship Committee, and many volunteers who include ushers and a number of current and retired pastors.

    To apply, send your resume, cover letter, and references in confidence to the email.
