Job Type: Full-Time

Job Description:
Job Title: Videographer

Reports To: Executive Producer

Based At: The Church Initiative, Wake Forest, NC

Job Purpose:

The Director of Video Services at Church Initiative assumes responsibility to acquire and edit footage for assigned projects. This is a key role at Church Initiative because the ministry specializes in the development of video resources.

Key Responsibilities:

Shooting: A Church Initiative the Director of Video Services is responsible for coordinating assigned studio and field video acquisition activities of the ministry. This will entail "hands-on" videography and the associated lighting, audio and logistic aspects of a location or studio session.

Editing: You will be responsible for executing assigned post-production tasks including participation in the planning process, non-linear editing (using Final Cut Pro), coordination of graphics and animation (in conjunction with a designer), audio, music and all other aspects of a finished production. On most projects you will be teamed with a producer who will give direction to the editing process. At other times you will be asked to "produce" segments on your own.

Tape Library Management: You will be responsible to manage our videotape library. This will involve keeping our tape library organized and preparing CD-ROM copies of our footage for transcription.

Equipment Management: As the Director of Video Services, you will oversee the operation and maintenance of Church Initiative video equipment. Should the ministry need additional equipment, it would be your responsibility to research options and recommend purchases. It would be your responsibility to locate and manage an outside contract engineer, if such services are needed to maintain equipment.

Replication: Part of your responsibilities includes coordination with video replicators to ensure maximum quality and monitoring of final product to ensure video meets or exceeds contract specifications.

Planning: You will also participate in the planning process for ministry video projects to ensure that the production and postproduction activities are effectively coordinated with writers, producers and all others involved with the project.

Additional duties: There are many other functions that occur throughout the day, which are too numerous to list. Some are major and require supervision and decision-making. Other tasks are trivial and will at times be an intrusion into your day. All are part of the "excitement" of a growing ministry and require that the entire staff be adaptable, supportive and cooperative in helping to meet the needs as they arise.


This position requires a proven track record in video-acquisition (shooting) and editing. Although it is not required, non-linear, Final Cut Pro editing experience is a plus.

Because this position is a central role in a ministry with national and international visibility, it is also important that applicants demonstrate spiritual maturity, including a professed relationship with Jesus Christ, a consistent and deep personal walk with the Lord, and a demonstrated heart for ministry through the local church.
