HR for the Church
Helping Churches Navigate the Practical & Legal Issues of Employment
As a steward of the staff God has given your church, you have a responsibility to understand the legal and practical implications of employment. If your church has a staff of one or more, you need HR for the Church.
HR for the Church is a valuable resource, providing guidance and clarity in the day to day issues of employment.
Topics addressed include job descriptions, performance evaluations, difficult employees, hiring, firing, personnel manuals, legal requirements, compensation, and benefits.
Paul said to the Corinthians, “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Cor 10:31) How we act as employers falls into the broad “whatever you do” category, and my prayer is that this manual will help you manage your church staff and employment issues to the glory of God.
