Specific duties and responsibilities for each church staff position are documented via a formal Job Description. The Job Description includes a general description, essential job functions, education and experience, grade, classification, staff designation, and reporting relationship.
Job Descriptions are available to assist new staff members with understanding their duties and responsibilities and other specifics about their position. Job Descriptions are also used to identify the requirements of a position, to determine hiring criteria, to set standards for staff member performance, and to establish a basis for making reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities.
The Executive Pastor and the ministry area leader develop Job Descriptions as the primary vehicle for establishing and creating a new church staff position. Existing Job Descriptions are reviewed and revised as needed when the requirements of a position change significantly. Staff members are encouraged to assist with ensuring Job Descriptions accurately reflect the specifics of their positions.
All questions or concerns about Job Descriptions should be discussed with the staff member’s ministry area leader or the Executive Pastor.
