Pros: Community involvement and seeing the growth and development of the youth.
Cons: Too many meetings
A typical day would consist of phone calls to those who were unable to attend church do to health reasons. Research for the Pastor, setting up the Sunday morning programs, assigning Associate Ministers assignments, visiting hospital, prisons, meditation and study.
I learned that a "title" is what you do and not who you are, hence the importance of listening to people. Hear their problem and concerns, yet always seek a solution.
The most challenging part of this job was working with people who insisted on doing things the same as it was done years and years ago.
The most rewarding part of this job was witnessing the "Ah Ha moments of the youth and young adults. Coordinating events that included the community such as; Community Thanksgiving Dinner, cookouts and games we played on the church grounds inviting the community to attend. Watching the children grow and display their creativity in skits, plays, musicals, and talent shows. Always with community involvement.
