I have a productive day as far as taking care of the children by meeting their needs. I've learned how to use management skills in high and low stress volume periods. I have had some difficult co- workers, and that has been the hardest part of the job.

Lamar Drummons is an inspiration to choral music. Singing at FUMC has been one of my favorite parts of living in BR. If you can get an audition, sin your heart out!

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Artesia, NMJuly 24, 2015
I'm a people person and love the day to day interaction. Love the hours as well. Independence is also a plus. Hardest part of the job is food pantry day. Hard to see how many children go hungry in our community and no one seems to care.

Wonderful congregation to work with and very accommodating.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Blackwell, OKJuly 15, 2015
Pros: Working with church members and taking care of them.
Cons: Difficulty working with new pastor and watching the church members suffer.
I would start my day with accounts receivable and accounts payable. I learned how to work with different accounting systems and how to submit tax paperwork for a non-profit business. The reason I left was because of management. The pastor they hired after I started was very difficult to work with and very rude to the congregational members. The hardest part of the job was trying to work with the new pastor and the 30 minute drive everyday. The most enjoyable part was getting to know the members and spending time with them.

Youth Director/ Head sound technician (Current Employee), Levelland, TXMay 18, 2015
Pros: It is a job that is not only fun but life changing
Cons: It is difficult becuase anytime you work with people there are difficulties.
I have learned how to work with people which I think is an invaluable skill. I also have gained great experience in planning and working through the details that are so important in planning. The hardest part of this job is keeping everyone involved happy and satisfied. To help large groups find compromises with one another.
