Balance of work and life through relationships.
Pastor (Current Employee), Troy, MINovember 25, 2013
Pros: lots of new people to meet.
Cons: change is hard, and sometimes people will try to upend those changes.
The most enjoyable part of my job is that each day is unique. There are new clients to serve, members who I have on-going work with, and ways to volunteer in the community that keep us interacting with a changing world. The most difficult part of the job is trying to change things for the future life of the church. Not everyone appreciates or sees the – more... need for changes.

A typical day at work includes quite a bit of managing people, volunteers, coordinating events, sharing hospitality, listening, counseling and planning for each and every Sunday!

I have learned how to lead while still keeping traditions alive. I have learned to set aside differences and look for common ground. – less

It can't get any better than being able to work for your church. Seeing the light in every child's eye is all the satisfaction I will ever need.
Youth Director (Current Employee), Spruce Pine, NCOctober 8, 2013
I work throughout the week assisting the pastor in coming up with different ideas for activities for both youth groups. Though they meet at separate times, there is always an activity in the mix. I work with kids who are 6 months to kids who are of high school age. The hardest part is keeping up with everyone and knowing where they are at all times. – more... I love working with children. To see the joy and light in their eyes when they walk through the doors of the church is the only satisfaction I need to know I am doing my job the right way. – less

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Morrison, ILAugust 5, 2013
Pros: great work schedule.
Cons: no health insurance or benefits
Each day brought about different activities/work for me to do which always made it exciting. I learned alot about how the church functions and was able to work with three wonderful Pastors during my time there. The most difficult task there was most people did not understand how important organization was and that they needed to work together to get – more... good results. I would say that the most enjoyable part of my job was the friendships I made and the people I came across on a daily basis. – less

Sous Chef/Chef in Training (Former Employee), Colorado Springs, COJuly 28, 2013
While at First Presbyterian Church, I was able to learn everything my Chef was able to teach me. He was about to retire and wanted to pass along everything he knew to his protégé, which was me. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new things and being able to show off my expertise where Chef had taught me.
