Hey Fletch … This link does not work https://www.xpastor.org/staffing/job-descriptions/elder-job-description-at-northwest-bible-chuch-of-dallas-texas/.
DRF—Thanks for catching that. We totally redid the job descriptions page. You can find it and other descriptions here: https://www.xpastor.org/staffing/job-descriptions/. And, I updated the link.
Most churches do not have role descriptions for their Governing Board. The titles can be Elders, Deacons, Trustees or some other one. Yet, every board member needs to know, “What am I supposed to be doing here?” They also need to know, “What am I not supposed to be doing?”
Define the turf and set expectations. Using sales terminology, ask for the order. If you don’t ask for anything from a board member, you are likely to get less than what you hoped for.
