|Church of Our Saviour [COS], an Episcopal congregation in Lincoln Park, Chicago, is seeking a full-time Office and Business Manager. Applicants should have a working knowledge of bookkeeping alongside a background in general office oversight and management. Most work is accomplished electronically and applicants should have an excellent command of business and communication software.
COS is a mid-sized congregation with a $700,000 annual budget. The Parish Business Manager’s role is to ensure that administrative structure supports the parish’s mission and various ministries. The parish is much more active than its size would indicate. The successful applicant must be able to work well with a variety of parish leaders, prioritize competing needs, supervise the small staff that reports to him or her and manage a small but busy office. The office staff currently uses MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, QuickBooks, and Servant Keeper software.
The Parish Business Manager is also responsible for the physical plant, which includes the 1888 church, the parish hall building, the old rectory (now office and meeting space), the parking lot and the small front gardens. Though not overly extensive, the buildings are historic and require ongoing maintenance. Weekly care of the buildings falls to the one full-time and three part-time sextons, each of whom reports directly to the Parish Business Manager. Buildings are used by both the congregation and outside groups.
The administration of the parish is divided into five Mission Areas:
The Parish Business Manager has direct responsibility for the 4th and 5th Mission Areas:
Area Four: Stewarding Resources
Area Five: Participating in the Larger Church
Areas One, Two and Three fall into the Business Manager’s purview in terms of scheduling building use and office needs; supporting the budget development and monthly reporting of individual Mission Areas; and working closely with those in charge of the various ministries represented within these Mission Areas to ensure the smooth operation of all parish programs and special events.
