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, NC – October 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. 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.
Relaxed, respectful environment. Very rewarding work.
Financial Secretary (Former Employee) – Las Cruces, NM – August 10, 2016
This is an excellent place to work. Awesome environment, very respectful co-workers. Only drawback might be that management changes yearly, and sometimes this can be a challenge learning to work with different personalities each year. Many opportunities for rewarding volunteer work.
Sound Engineer (Current Employee) – Clarion, PA – June 24, 2016
My normal day begins with unlocking the Church building and setting up for the Sunday morning activities. I then proceed to check the sidewalks for any trash and/or garbage as well as for snow during winter months. After the sidewalk, I begin to prepare the sound system for the morning services. Following the services and any meetings I secures the building. Very nice place to work. They people are very nice and helpful. the Staff are very smart and knowledgeable. The most difficult part of the job is keeping the sidewalks clear from snow and ice during the service.

Child Care Assistant (Current Employee) – Oceanside, CA – June 1, 2016
I only work here on Sunday mornings. Every Sunday, I have the pleasure of working with 3 yr olds from teaching them a bible lesson to play on the playground with them. The hardest part of the job is when a child has to move away or gets to old to be in my class. My favorite part of the job is getting to watch the kids grow and work with their families through the years they are there.
Administration/Director of Outreach Program (Current Employee) – Van Buren, AR – June 3, 2016
I have learned better organizational skills which help me focus. A lot of volunteer work has gotten me out of myself. They were impressed at my review and decided to bring me on full time... We have been very active in the church which has helped our family greatly.
Camera Man & Technical Director (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – May 2, 2016
I would turn on the Tricaster, sound, lights and computer. Made sure that everything worked. I learned a lot about framing the shot and when to cut to a close up. I also learned how to use the tricaster to manipulate shots by getting extreme close ups. My co workers were fun to work with because I was able to learn from their experiences and try to find shots that they would not have found. For me the hardest part was leaving. I had so much fun with the cameras that once I left everyone at my church knew that they should have paid me to be their full time camera man. And, every time I come to visit everyone asks me if I am running the cameras. I had the most fun making the praise team look like a real band by making every song they sing and old MTV music video.
Church Administrator (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – May 25, 2016
This was a nice place to work, but not much pay. Working at a church, you not only deal with the pastors, but you have to answer to all the members for the congregation. And this church is extremely political and outspoken.
I really enjoyed learning with kids and receiving such wonderful hugs daily.

Photographer (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – February 19, 2016
First Presbyterian Church is good environment to work in and to meet new people. Nice atmosphere and coworkers to rely on. I learn new technquies when handling children because of the age group we have. The hardest part of the job is there is limited room and people to look over the kids and at times there are over a dozen but some are old enough that we can rely on them to be good so we can watch over the younger ones. We read to them and teach them new skills for them to use when they grow up.
Good environment and place to grow
Once a week and only about two and half hours of work

Assistant Teacher (Former Employee) – Muncie, IN – January 25, 2016
This job was very flexible with my school schedule. They were understanding of my other duties outside of the church. I learned how to work with children in a structured way by creating lesson plans and helping children with everyday activities. The co-workers are friendly and helpful. The hardest part was leaving the children and watching them move on.
My work at First Presbyterian was truly rewarding for me. I was their A1 Audio Engineer until I moved from Houston to Austin. I enjoyed running sound at the church. Nice and wholesome environment to work in
