Pinelake Church

Do you live to recruit and equip leaders for video, audio, lighting, and other worship production roles? Are you passionate about leading production teams to the highest standards of excellence, but just as important, shepherding them to have a deeper walk with Christ? Are you comfortable with throwing Planning Center out the window and leading your teams in the moment when The Spirit is moving, and we are following the Senior Pastor or worship leader “off script?” Are you experienced and highly skilled in video, audio, staging, and lighting, but prefer to invest in leading others instead of being tied to a piece of gear yourself? If this describes you, then we cant wait to talk to you!

The Production Director at Pinelake Church’s Madison Campus is the production team leader responsible for recruiting, equipping, spiritually shepherding, and providing overall leadership to the production teams (producers, audio, lighting, video, stagehands) for two worship venues at the Madison Campus.

We'll connect quickly if you:

  • Love to recruit, equip, lead and spiritually shepherd servant-leader team;
  • Naturally think about how to lead leaders, and employ a clear method to accomplish the vision;
  • Have experience leading as the key production director for a church of 750 or more (even better if it's in a multi-site context);
  • Possess a unique drive and commitment to excellence, yet have the heart of a pastor; and,
  • Creatively engage FOH (Front of House) audio, lighting, service production, and live video production;

You'll thrive with us if you:

  • Love high-energy, fast-paced, creative environments;
  • Value high attention to detail and production value;
  • Thrive on feedback, but are confident enough to bring new ideas to the table for collaboration;
  • Find more joy in coaching rather than doing; and,
  • Always look for ways to grow and excel in your craft.

A few must-haves:

  • A bachelor's degree or equivalent training, and/or 5 years+ of experience in audio, video, and lighting;
  • Expertise in FOH audio and lighting systems is crucial;
  • A "get it done, won't take no for an answer" personality;
  • The heart and drive to build a robust and thriving servant-leader team; and,
  • Excellent time management and organizational abilities.

The story of Pinelake Church began in February of 1971 in Brandon, Mississippi in a mobile chapel in a rural area near The Reservoir. By God's grace and power, our faith family has grown into a dynamic church spanning five cities throughout our state -- Clinton, Madison, Oxford, the Reservoir, and Starkville. Weekly, we serve over 12,000 people, but we celebrate stories of life change one person at a time.

We planted our Madison campus in 2006, and God has done some fantastic things in our midst! Currently, we welcome 1700 children, students, and adults each weekend from across Madison County to our worship experiences, bless the community through our Care Center and other ministries, and are a vibrant expression of Christ to all those in Madison County! What's more, Madison is one of the fastest-growing counties in the state, with an 8.1% population growth over the past five years and over 100,000 current residents!
