We are used to the idea of a paid member of staff working from a church office which becomes the hub of church activity. But that does not work for most small churches. So, instead, the notes give seven different ways of thinking.
- Assistant rather than Administrator
- Gofer rather than Secretary
- Responsibilities rather than tasks
- Home rather than office
- Flexible rather than fixed
- Voluntary rather than paid
- Limited rather than open-ended
There is then a final note on how to go about finding such a person with three possible areas to search: the congregation, the local community and other local churches.
