Church with a quiet heart and a desire to do well in all things
Director of Discipleship / Christian Education (Former Employee) – Granville, OH 43023 – August 15, 2016
I learned the inner workings of a church, how to organize and prioritize tasks in a ministry setting, how to build communication systems among volunteer groups and organize ministries in such a way that contemporary families are not overwhelmed by the expectations of society and of church.
I am the Youth Leader Coordinator for Centenary UMC. I handle all of the organizational duties needed to run the Youth Group. I make hotel reservations, event registration, travel arrangements, planning and setting up events
Awful place to work! It's a revolving door, and management and Directors are terrible.
Former Employee (Former Employee) – NC – April 30, 2013
If you are thinking of applying for a position at Centenary, I would definitely reconsider. Although Centenary would have been a great place to work ten years ago, it has become a revolving door where the Directors and the board care more about money and the bottom line, then about giving their employees benefits and listening to their concerns. As of now, most of their business staff was laid off unexpectantly and that is probably why this position is even open, There have been huge budget cuts recently and the employees as well as the daycare teachers deserve a raise, but won't get one. Because of NC law, and because you work at a church, they can fire you at any time, and keep it moving. Most workers walk on eggshells because of the higher ups and if you are not a part of the inner circle, then you are treated like an outcast and are better off finding a job where you arent just tolerated and get low wages and sorry benefits.
Very political environment, awful low benefits if any, mean and verbally abusive parishioners and Directors
