Ministers of larger churches meet a perplexing range of demands. Without the framework of a job description / role description in some form, priorities can be difficult to assess.
Here is a possible role description listing ten key responsibilities, to act as a template for any specific appointment. It is written with an Anglican incumbent in mind but can be easily adapted to a different structural environment.
- Own spiritual growth
- Church vision
- Public worship
- Staff team
- Lay ministry
- Decision making
The template is then followed by a short set of notes to explain, among other things, the order chosen for the responsibilties listed.
Here is the link to this item: TN6 - The Minister's role in larger churches.pdf
These notes were updated in July 2019 with minor alterations to the design.
