Our Ministry’s Vision Statement
The FBC Personnel Committee is led by a man or woman displaying Christ-like character and Spirit-led life as described in Colossians 3:1-16 and Galatians 5:16- 26. The Personnel Committee typically consists of at least three members, all who hold full membership at Faith Baptist Church. The personnel committee exists to help manage the full and part time employees who serve the needs of the church on a daily basis. As a German based entity, the members of the personnel committee maintain a basic understanding of German employment guidelines and help direct the church in areas related to employment. Additionally, the personnel committee prepares an annual budget for personnel related costs and works with the finance committee and treasurer to ensure employment costs are captured correctly.
How we serve
The purpose of the Personnel Committee is to advertise for, interview and hire to fill vacant staff positions within the school, pre-school and church office and to establish salaries for these positions. Additionally, the personnel committee assists the pastor, deacons and council members in matters related to employed personnel including advising in or executing administrative actions called by church action. The personnel committee writes and maintains job descriptions for all church front office, pre-school and school job positions. We are required to review and update personnel policies, handle complaints for paid positions, bring recommendations to the church council for both the hiring and terminating of staff.
Qualifications needed for someone to serve on our team
The qualifications for becoming a member of the personnel committee are first and foremost to display a Christ-like character and Spirit-led life as described in Colossians 3:1-16 and Galatians 5:16- 26. A willingness to learn and understand German employment rules and guidelines is also an important factor in becoming a member of the personnel committee. Experience in human resources (HR) or employee management are helpful as well.
