Job Listing Service

Job Listing Service

The ALCM job listing service connects those looking for jobs in the field of church music with congregations and other institutions that have job openings posted on the ALCM website. Congregations regularly report back to us that the candidates they interviewed and/or hired found the listing on the ALCM site. Individuals searching for jobs can view both full-time positions (35+ hours per week) and part-time positions (less than 35 hours per week). The position listing can be arranged in ascending or descending order by state and by date of posting. Individuals then apply directly to the congregation.

The ALCM job listing service is currently offered free of charge. Beginning in September 2017, there will be a $25 fee for listing positions on the ALCM site. Fees paid for this service will be deposited directly into a designated scholarship fund, which is used primarily to provide financial assistance for church music students to attend ALCM-sponsored educational events. By paying this listing fee, congregations will be directly supporting the raising up of new musicians within the church. The scholarship fund also receives donations from ALCM members who “round up” their membership dues and from directed gifts to the fund.

To submit a job listing, please fill out the online job listing form. Be sure to enter data in all required fields (indicated by an asterisk). If you encounter an error, check to be sure that you have listed information in all of the required fields and then click the "Add" button again. If you still receive an error message, contact the ALCM office by email at office@alcm.org or by phone during office hours at 800-624-2526.

After you submit your information, you will see a confirmation page with your data, indicating that it has been received by the ALCM office. PLEASE NOTE that listings submitted will not appear immediately on the web site, but normally will be posted to the site within 24 hours (or, in the case of holidays and weekends, on the next business day).

Once your form has been submitted, you cannot make changes to it. To request updates or changes, please email us at office@alcm.org.

Your ad will be listed for three months from the posting date and will then be deleted. Please contact us if you fill your position earlier than three months or if you wish your ad to continute beyond the three months.
