Job Description:
Central Presbyterian Church has a rich history and great aspirations. It is a very mission oriented congregation both with hands-on mission and through benevolence giving. It has a cable TV station on site, an outstanding Weekday Nursery School with 550 students a week and boasts of Tiffany stained glass windows and one of the finest pipe organs in the state. The Business Administrator is responsible for the campus which comprises 2 city blocks and the congregation's 2 manses. The church is literally central to Summit and is a 3-minute walk across the city green to the train station into the city.

The Business Administror oversees the work of 3 FT custodians, 3 FT Administrative Assistants, a Bookkeeper and a Building Superintendent. He/She is administers the $1.3 million Operating Fund and the $9 million Endowment Fund. Our new Senior Pastor is working with our Session to lay out a bold new vision which will certainly require a capital fund campaign. Our congregation is made up of many people who ride the direct commuter train 40 minutes into Penn Station, NYC. We have a skilled, mature staff who seek a colleague to become partners to in bringing CPC into a new era of ministry.

We are seeking a "generalist" in our Business Manager who will keep our computers, server and LAN up and running, our ledgers and files orderly, our bills paid, our staff on task, and our building in better repair than they found it. The successful candidate will demonstrate talents and training in several administrative fields, but also excellent people skills as she/he will be interacting with many people in the congregation and the community. A solid commitment to the leadership of the Senior Pastor and the elders is essential.
