- Chief Experience Officer – someone to make sure every environment is functioning on all levels. A person with an aesthetic eye…not limited to adults or the lobby, but a person who works across all ministries.
- Prayer strategist – someone to pray, get others praying, teach on prayer. Isn’t prayer important in the church? What if we hired someone to lead this rather than tack it on to someone’s job description.
- What about a Bible scholar who would bring a whole different dynamic to helping us focus on truth. Someone who would help people read the Bible…kids, students, adults. Someone passionate about getting the Bible to the world, and into the hands of people.
- What about a Social Media Director. Not IT or websites…social media…connecting media. What about organizers and administrators? Why do we try to find someone to organize kids, and ask a different person to organize adults?
- What about a chief encouragement officer? A glass-half-full person who made sure the church was encouraging the community, the staff was being encouraged, volunteers were being encouraged. Not just thanked, but encouraged.
- What about a grant writer or a fundraiser or a financial counselor?
I could really see these being full time, paid jobs in a lot of churches. Or maybe part-time. Or maybe volunteer. Let’s get outside the box and think different.
