I am trying to find sample job descriptions for paid staff in a small to medium SBC church (e.g. Pastor, Youth Minister, Church Secretary, Financial Secretary, Minister of Music, Instrumentalist, Sound Technician, etc.)I figure if one person asks, it must be on other people's minds as well. Here's what I posted for him:
First, I suggest you get a copy of Career Crossover: Leaving the Marketplace for Ministry, by Tom Harper. It has some of the best job descriptions I've seen as a part of the Appendixes starting on page 144. These are better than any I have seen online. I have a sample of the book posted in our LifeWay online catalog.
If you're looking for a site where churches have shared their job descriptions, our friends over at ChurchStaffing posted a bunch here. They have 200+ job descriptions for you free of charge.
As far as unpaid ministry positions, these articles on lifeway.com are very helpful and practical.
- Job Descriptions for Childhood Ministry
- Job Description for Sunday School Directors
- Why Church Officers and Committees Are Needed. This article is from Church Officer and Committee Guidebook, Revised. You will be able to download a free sample of this helpful guidebook: Chapter 3 - Role of Church Officers
