Develop a Ministry Position Description

on . Hits: 1730

 

The Parish Volunteer Screening Committee will develop a ministry role description for every ministry position within their parish. It is imperative to describe each ministry position and define its inherent risk and the measures that will be taken in order to address these risks.

Below is a list of ten items, which must be covered in a Ministry Position Description.

  1. Overview
    States what the position is about
  2. Mandatory Activities/Responsibilities
    Lists what this position requires the volunteer to do and how and when they are required to perform these responsibilities
  3. Skills, Experience and Qualifications
    Lists the knowledge and ability the volunteer should have in order to carry out the responsibilities
  4. Personal Traits and Qualities
    Lists what the volunteer should be like in order to be able to carry out the responsibilities
  5. Orientation and Training
    Lists what is needed to prepare you for this ministry in this parish community
  6. Participant Group
    Outlines who the volunteer will serve and with whom they will minister
  7. Support, Supervision, and Evaluation
    Outlines who will support the volunteer in this ministry position
  8. Length of Ministry Appointment
    States how long the volunteer is required to serve in this ministry position
  9. Benefits and Working Conditions
    Lists the advantages the volunteer will receive and the situation of the position
  10. Screening Measures
    Lists the steps that will be used to determine if this is the right ministry position for this volunteer and how the volunteer will be supported and monitored

Finally, include a place for the Ministry Coordinator (if one exists), the Parish Volunteer Screening Committee and the Pastor's approval. Date the Ministry Position Description.

I am pleased to inform you that the new lift is now fully approved and operational. All the parish staff have keys to the lift and can assist you if you need to use the lift. Over the next few weeks, the parish ushers, along with other parishioners, will be trained on its use so that there should always be a sufficient number of people who can assist anyone needing to use it.
