Overall Church Leader
In faith-based organizations, people find the strength and companionship necessary to lead a fulfilling life. The overall leader must provide a strong source of belief and direction. In addition, this leader must have the ability to build long-lasting relationships with others, and possess the skill of giving sound advice while maintaining confidentiality. The strength, skills, and faith of this leader lays the foundation of the Church, and can be the difference between a church’s success or failure. In addition to the overall Church leader, there are other leadership positions which play important roles in the organization.
The Youth Leader has an extremely important role both in the education of youth, but also for the growth of the Church. This position involves the ability to convey important information while building strong relationships with the youth. The young people of the Church must feel comfortable in going to this leader with any type of problem. At times, this leader may be the only adult that a young person may feel comfortable enough with to share problems or concerns. In addition to educating and counseling the youth of the Church, this leader must have a sense of humor to aid in building a strong foundation with the youth, and to enable the young people to relate to the leader as a person.
There are many committees within the Church such as Finance, Operations, Social and Outreach. Although these positions may not be paid, it is still critical to place the best possible person in each position. Each of these leadership positions involves abilities such as organization, strength, and the ability to building strong relationships with others. It is the responsibility of the committee leader to see that the mission of the committee is fulfilled in a correct and timely manner.
