Worship Pastor

Relevant Church

5485 Charlotte Hwy, Lake Wylie, South Carolina


The Worship Pastor will serve as a member of the Pastoral staff reporting directly to the Lead Pastor. This position works closely with the pastoral staff, production team, and other related departments to plan and implement all worship services for the weekend and special events.


Relevant Church began in the living room of our Founding Pastor Matt McGarity. He and his wife
Elizabeth had been serving a ministry in the area where Matt was positioned to launch and lead
contemporary services. Shortly after this, God began to burden Matt’s heart to reach the lost and felt
the call to plant a church. After sharing this with the leadership he was submitted to, the church released
him to begin what is now Relevant Church! Like most church plants, it went from his living room to a
school, where the church began to grow.
Over the years, Relevant has transitioned locations a few times, finally gathering in a beautiful YMCA
that was built by the Clover School District. Relevant Church has a beautiful partnership with the YMCA,
hosting local prayer breakfasts, ministering to afterschool kids, and supporting various community
efforts. With over 15k memberships to this YMCA location alone, Relevant has a great opportunity to
meet people where they are. In 2015, Waters Edge, a local church plant in South Charlotte merged with
Relevant. It was during this time that our current Lead Pastor, Josh Hair, came to the church. His wife,
Summer, and three kids moved to the Charlotte area so that Josh could attend graduate school at
Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. He began as our Generations Pastor, overseeing kids through
college, eventually stepping into a Discipleship Pastor role in 2020.
Our Founding Pastor had served in the USMC for 10 years and it was during this season of his life that
Matt McGarity heard God calling him to ministry. He never expected that years down the road Matt
would feel led to rejoin the military reserves as part of the chaplain core. This began an incredible
extension of RLVNT’s ministry in 2016 to our service men and women. Over the years, there were
multiple deployments for short stints of time. During these deployments, our current Lead Pastor, Josh
Hair, took the lead in his absence. During one of the deployments to Paris Island, the Lord began to call
Matt and his wife to full-time, activeduty chaplaincy. This brought about a leadership transition that
took place in late July of 2023. Pastor Josh and his family had been under Matt’s leadership for over
seven and a half years, making the transition very smooth and natural.
Relevant Church is poised for tremendous growth in the area. The church is well established and has a
great reputation in the community, but is limited in ministry expansion based on its current facility. There
are many pros and cons to leasing a multi-million dollar facility, but the church has always been content,
yet always open for change. Relevant is on the move looking for property in a fastgrowing area! With a
new vision from Pastor Josh, the church is looking to purchase property and build a facility that is a
blessing not only for the church but primarily for the community. Equally important, is the heartbeat of
Relevant Church, to raise up, empower and send out leaders. The Founding Pastor instilled a desire to
plant churches/ministries within the DNA of Relevant. We would love to see the Kingdom of God
advance through any means possible.

Lake Wylie/Clover sits right along the state line of North and
South Carolina. All of the amenities of living near a major
metropolitan area, but without all of the chaos. Charlotte is
currently considered one of the best places to live in the
country. Along with its booming economy, being the home of
the Carolina Panthers, NASCAR, and the White Water Center,
Charlotte continues to grow every year!
South Carolina is highly sought after for its conservative state
government, lower taxes, and phenomenal school districts.
Clover and Fort Mill (surrounding cities) are yearly rated as the
top two school districts in the state! From music to sports, to
education, Clover Schools make the community a great place
to raise a family. Another great aspect is that Clover is located
two hours from the Blue Ridge mountains and three hours from
the coast!
