Local Church Leadership Roles
Understanding the leadership roles of the local church is essential for our elected leaders and church members.
- The twenty-six Guidelines for Leading Your Congregation 2017-2020, one for each ministry area, cover church leadership areas, as well as areas focused on nurture, outreach, and witness. The booklets are tools that get new leaders off to a good start and as a reference resource for all leaders. Each booklet includes the basic “job description” for the leader as well as practical “how-to” information important to implementing ministry effectively.
- Ministry job descriptions of local church committees and individual leadership roles can be found on the Discipleship Ministries webpage.
- Job Descriptions and Leadership Training in The United Methodist Church, is also a helpful resource.
