YOUR CHURCH does not have a policy against outside employment. A church staff member may, if desired, hold an outside position. However, outside employment should not interfere in any way with the proper performance of a staff member’s duties and responsibilities. All church staff members are held to the same performance standards and scheduling expectations regardless of any outside employment.
If it is determined that outside employment is unfavorably impacting the performance of a church staff member for any reason, the staff member may be asked to terminate the outside employment. Additionally, if a staff member’s outside employment has an undesirable impact on the church it will be considered to be a conflict of interest and will be addressed as described herein.
