Music Director Position
Eastminster Presbyterian Church of Stone Mountain, Georgia, a mid-sized
congregation located in the Greater Atlanta Area, is searching for a Music Director to
lead a high-caliber music ministry. Applicants must have earned a Bachelor of
Music degree. The strongest candidates will be proficiently trained in classical
church music and possess the ability to incorporate and arrange a variety of musical
styles to complement worship services.
Candidates should exhibit strong expertise in both choral directing and organ
performance. Vocal abilities that enhance rehearsals and performances are an
additional consideration. Our current music ministry includes adult, youth and
children’s choirs and instrumental ensembles (hand bell choir, orchestra, and a
contemporary vocal/instrumental ensemble), and we expect that the individual we
hire will continue to organize and lead these activities. Eastminster’s new music
director should be someone of strong Christian faith who translates the role of
music into church life.
Eastminster has a tradition of excellence in music and is well appointed with quality
instruments, including a Zimmer and Sons III/30 pipe organ, a Kawai grand piano,
and four-octave and three-octave sets of Schulmerich hand bells. A Johannus ONE
digital keyboard has recently been purchased. Paid section leader positions are
funded for the choir. In 2017, celebrating Eastminster’s 50th anniversary, Daniel
Gawthrop was commissioned to write Christ’s Redemption.
This position is full time, benefits included. Salary will be commensurate with skills,
education and experience. The music director position will be available beginning
July 16, 2018 and the search will continue until the position is filled.

questions can be directed to phone number 770-469-4881.
