How to Revise Job Descriptions

How can (and should) your church handle job descriptions?

[Subscribers, log in to watch this member-only webinar.]

Whose job is it anyway?

Up-to-date and realistic job descriptions are crucial ministry tools, but how many churches have them?

COVID-19 and a shift to hybrid ministry in 2020 has rendered many existing job descriptions obsolete. In this member-only webinar, Aaron Hill sits down with Tiffany Henning, Founder of HR Ministry Solutions, to discuss why and how churches should update job descriptions.

Members will learn about:

  • The legal and practical reasons why churches should write and revise job descriptions.
  • The how of job descriptions: ten basic steps, templates, defining a star profile, “stay interviews,” and using them to conduct performance reviews and regular coaching.

Tiffany also fields a number of in-depth questions from members: including at-will statements, physical and spiritual requirements, and much more.

This webinar is available to ChurchSalary annual subscribers. Links to the resources mentioned in the webinar as well as other useful links are provided for members below.
