Music Ministries Leader


Pastor Matt Marluft

Welcome to ECC Springfield!  We are blessed that you’ve taken time to learn more about us.  At ECC Springfield there are meaningful rewards and challenges for a new Music Ministries Leader.  Our body of believers supports ministry for all ages and levels of spiritual growth.  God has blessed this church with musicians and worship opportunities spanning a wide array of musical styles.

Who are we?  Our congregation of approximately 200 on Sunday mornings has a rich history of serving the Lord and sharing the love of Jesus with our community for 130 years.  ECC is a multigenerational, increasingly diverse congregation that desires to study God’s Word, walk closer with him, and engage in joyful, infectious worship!

ECC Springfield is at an amazing place in its life.  Having recently undergone changes in the staff of our music ministry, we await a new leader who has a heart for God and loves to make music creatively and collaboratively. We’re excited to embrace contemporary worship while retaining our heritage of singing “Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs” (Eph. 5: 14).  We desire to grow together in the love of Jesus, glorifying Him in passionate worship while inviting others in our community to join us.

Peace and Blessings in Jesus,

The Evangelical Covenant Church of Springfield, MA
