Megan Kusch, Lifepoint’s Worship Director, has faithfully served in her current role since late 2019. In late July, Megan shared with Adam that she’s ready to step back from her role as Worship Director. Megan loves our church and loves the team she gets to lead, but she believes that the best thing for her, her family, and for Lifepoint is for her to make this transition. On Oct 10, 2021, we shared this news with the church. October 31, 2021, will be Megan’s last day on staff.
Why is this happening?
Megan has enjoyed serving our church as worship director and now feels the Lord inviting her into a different season. She and her husband Josh are looking forward to the new season for their family and to the new opportunities the Lord will bring.
What is Megan’s plan?
Megan’s plan is to take some time to rest from serving on the Worship & Arts Lifeteam. After this season of rest she would love to eventually volunteer on the worship team again. In the meantime she and Josh plan to continue worshipping with Lifepoint Church from the congregation.
What is the church’s plan?
In early August, we began the process of conducting a national search for our next Worship Pastor. Through the organization we are partnering with, we currently have 40+ candidates. If you know anyone who may be interested, they can apply here: https://frootgroup.com/jobs/. We expect the search and hiring process to take 4-6 months. That means we will likely make this hire in late 2021 or early 2022.
In the meantime, we have arranged to have Caleb and Jenn Wilbur lead worship for our church through the end of the year, beginning Sunday, November 7. Some of you may remember Caleb and Jenn, as they led worship for us in mid-August.
How will this impact you?
Megan has been an incredible leader for our church. She is wise, she is thoughtful, and she really loves Jesus a lot. (Also, she’s pretty decent at singing :-)). We know our staff team will miss her presence at our weekly staff meetings and her leadership on Sunday mornings. Most likely you will too.
But we also have confidence that the Lord is preparing both our church and our future Worship Pastor for an incredible season that we’re stepping into. To that end, please pray that God would bring the exact right person to our church. Please pray that God would be blessing and preparing this person and their family even now. Pray that God would give our leadership team clarity on who to hire.
So, how will this impact you? Probably not much. We have a good plan and we have an even better God. He is faithful, and He is worthy of our worship, no matter what.
