Job Description

The Parish Administrator is an essential element in the smooth functioning of the church. The Administrator runs the church office,
handles the administrative responsibilities and provides a wide range of support to the pastor, and Church staff, as well as the Congregation Council. The Parish Administrator typically is often the first person visitors and newcomers come across at the church, whether by phone or in person, and is therefore an important part of the church’s public image and outreach. Discretion, a positive attitude, strong problem-solving abilities and excellent interpersonal skills are critical qualifications for anyone occupying this position.

The Holy Spirit is leading us to call a Parish Administrator to serve with us to carry out ministry opportunities with and for people of all ages. We hope to be more mission driven and reach out to those beyond our membership and share the Good News with them.

The work of the Administrator is therefore essential to the functioning of the church as it seeks to serve God, its members and the wider community. A high level of Administrative service helps to create a setting conducive to worship, study, discussion, pastoral care and fellowship.

The Parish Administrator will work with coworkers, congregation disciples/members, volunteer leaders and other Bethany leaders. The Parish Administrator will contribute to a positive working atmosphere in a team-based setting that supports the congregation’s mission. The Parish Administrator will be dealing with private affairs and must maintain confidentiality at all times.
