The St. Paul United Church of Christ in Elyria is beginning the process of advertising for and recruiting a part-time church organist. For this position to be posted at Oberlin College, what procedures should be followed? I have looked at your web site and see the “Gig Referral Service,” but I am not sure that is the place for this posting this position because the organist job, while part-time, will involve a long-term commitment.
Thanks for any guidance you can provide.
