First Baptist is an old church that is going through change.
Executive Pastor (Former Employee), Eugene, ORJanuary 5, 2014
Pros: the staff is very close while maintaining their ethical and moral values.
Cons: they struggle with oversight and leadership, but they're getting better
The church compromised themselves disregarding policy and procedures. It cost the church dearly and caused a number of problems leading to 6+ departments that needed major reform and oversight. Overall they are wonderful people who made some poor decisions that lead to serious problems. I was hired to fix the problems that needed to be dealt with. I – more... believe my time there really helped turn things around. I believed they are profiled for success in the future. I enjoyed my time there very much. – less

Very enjoyable place to work, only left because of moving
Janitor (Former Employee), Kennett, MODecember 30, 2013
Pros: good hours, provided insurance, friendly work environment
Cons: being on call every other weekend
At this job I would start every morning cleaning the general office area. It is a very big church so each day I would clean different parts of the church. My responsibilities were cleaning the bathrooms, nursery's, kitchen, fellowship hall, sanctuary, library, hallways, and life center. The church has over 200 rooms and a life center which is a separate – more... building. The members would come in and out a lot needing help with upcoming events so I had to be flexible with the cleaning schedule because the things they needed help with always came first. On Wednesdays and Sundays I had to come back after working hours and turn on lights and unlock doors and on Sundays I had to prepare coffee and water and clean up after morning service to prepare for their night service. I developed a personal relationship with a lot of the members there so they felt comfortable asking for help with anything they needed. The most enjoyable part of my job was the fact it was flexible and in a positive environment. The hardest part was working on Sundays and being on call every other weekend. – less

I love kids and I love the Lord so what better place to work than a church daycare.All the parents were very nice and the kids were great to be around. The one thing I did not like about the job was my kids going to another class when they got to old for me. Didn't want to see them go.
