    George Butler Email: geohbutler@aol.com

    Position Description

    We are looking for a person who is administratively gifted with the heart of a pastor and who will disciple and shepherd as he organizes, develops structures/processes, and leads. This individual must be a self-starter with strong leadership gifts, and able to execute our 10 Year Vision. He will understand that organizational and administrative tasks are not an end in and of themselves, but rather a platform to grow the spiritual health and well-being of the people God has entrusted to this church.

     

    The Genesis Church Executive Pastor has three primary fields of ministry and staff oversight:

    1. Genesis Petoskey ministry strategy
    2. Facility management and use
    3. Central church office oversight and multi-site coordination

    Relationally, the Genesis Church Executive Pastor (from here on XP) will:

    • Participate on the staff and pastoral team as well as attend and participate in the life of Genesis Church – Petoskey.
    • Report to the lead pastor, oversee all Petoskey staff and leaders, as well as coordinate and support multi-site staff.

    General Responsibilities:

    1. Petoskey Ministry Strategy – Along with a team of key leaders and deacons, the XP ensures that the stated vision and direction of the church is implemented consistently and graciously in the entire church. The XP needs to know how to plan, strategize, and mobilize staff and volunteers. The XP mentors key leaders and deacons, growing staff to become gifted leaders in their areas. The XP takes the fleshed out 10-Year Vision of the elder team and implements it with effective steps of execution for all of the ministry staff of pastors, directors, deacons, and coordinators. Aspects include: goal setting and strategy, development and mentoring, and ministry evaluation.
    • Goal setting and strategy is the formal process of integrating deacon and departmental ministries to execute the stated church vision. The goals need to be quantified numerically or expressed qualitatively. The strategy involves proper stewardship of all church resources and spiritual gifting within a culture of high challenge and accountability.
    • Development and mentoring is the “walk around” aspect of knowing every member of the staff. Job descriptions are honed to maximize the giftedness of each person and exclude limitations as much as possible. Personal coaching will mentor and improve staff to reach their potential. This includes working closely with members of the Genesis staff, effectively uniting with and complementing all ministry leaders.
    • Ministry evaluation is the process of developing quarterly, semi-annual, and/or annual evaluations of ministry. Various metrics and dashboards will be further developed and used to determine effectiveness in pursuit of the 10 Year Vision.
    1. Facility Management and Use – Along with a team of key leaders and deacons, the XP oversees a facilities manager, establishing a ten-year plan for upkeep, renovations, and new buildings.  Because of the nature of the Genesis Center and the desire to share the facility as much as possible with the community, policies and systems will need to be developed (i.e., community uses, weddings, etc.).
    1. Central church office oversight and multi-site coordination – Along with an office staff and volunteers, the XP leads the central church office and oversees the partnership relationship with our three church sites. Three areas of support and cooperation are:
    • Communications – Includes: website, Genesis app, weekly email communications, and social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter). It also includes information technology: computers, software, software as a service, web integration, campus Wi-Fi, etc.
    • Finance – Includes: oversight of budgets, cash flow, income and expenses, insurance, payroll, and human resources
    • Staffing – Will have aspects of pay scale, hiring, reviewing, mentoring, and terminating staff. Ensuring that staff and department meetings are vibrant, effective, and efficient is a must.

    Qualifications:

    • Fulfill the character qualifications and duties of elder in the spirit of 1 Timothy 3:1-7
    • Agree with and adhere to the Genesis Church Statement of Faith, Constitution and By-laws
    • Have a strong gift of leadership and be able to develop leaders of leaders
    • Have a pastoral heart and is energized by discipling and shepherding others
    • Understand the Genesis Petoskey vision, purpose, and direction
    • Demonstrate wisdom in decisions, actions, and recommendations
    • Maintain godly and strong working relationships with all pastors, elders, staff, and volunteers

    When Applying Please Include:

    • A one page cover letter explaining how you balance being an Executive with being a Pastor and, having read the job description, which you feel is more important for this position.
    • The results from your Myers-Briggs Test.
