Though I am providing some resources for job descriptions, let me highly suggest that you only use them as a tool. The objective is to accomplish what God wants your church to do, not to replicate what others are doing.
These templates and samples may not incorporate what has been suggested in this practicum but can give you some ideas. It is your responsibility to tailor your job descriptions to your ministry and to line them up with the basics of life in Christ. If you haven’t already done so, you would do well to read through at least the following articles in this Practicum first:
- Job Descriptions in the Church?
- Church Job Descriptions Reflect Purpose?
- Church Job Descriptions Reflect Body Life?
- Church Job Descriptions Reflect the Great Commission?
- Job Descriptions Reflect God’s Heart for the Church?
- Job Descriptions Reflect a Need for God’s Power?
