Title: Business Administrator

Position Summary
The position is charged with the overall administration of the church. This includes, but is not limited to, the areas of financial planning, accounting, office management, procurement, facilities management, legal matters, risk management, strategic planning, committee support, human resource management and information technology. The candidate supervises administrative and facility support staff, collaborates with program ministers, pastors, and works with lay leadership in committees that affect operations to realize the ministries and missions of our church.

Minimum Candidate Qualifications
To meet the vision and expectations that we have for the Administrative Ministry at SPBC we seek a candidate with the following attributes and qualifications:

Leadership and Relational Skills
The BA holds a significant leadership role in the life of our church. We seek a candidate who has demonstrated administrative leadership and who possesses a capacity for working with people in a multifaceted role: as a supervisor, teacher/trainer, facilitator, collaborator and both team player and coach.

Education & Training
A Bachelor Degree from an accredited college or university is required. Formal training in each of the following areas, or 5 years demonstrated experience is required: accounting systems and procedures, personnel management, business administration, office automation and facilities management. Knowledge of Southern Baptist Church governance and operations is a strong plus and preferred, but not required.

A minimum of 10 years of demonstrated leadership experience working in a similar administrative role is required. Ideally this experience has been in church administration, however, persons with administrative or management experiences in business, or other organizations with a similar scope of responsibilities may be considered.

Organization Skills
Demonstrated skills in planning, organizing and coordinating at multiple levels of an organization are required. The candidate must be able to manage a variety of resources and be comfortable delegating tasks while maintaining accountability for program responsibilities. To be successful, the capacity for organization must be both personal and institutional. A strong plus would be project management skills as they relate to facilities, technologies, personnel development, and organizational change and growth.

Communication Skills
The candidate must be able to effectively communicate with ministers and church officials, our church staff and lay leaders, the congregation at large, and our community through verbal, written and electronic means. Our ideal candidate is naturally outgoing and comfortable relating with people and also conscientious in handling time sensitive correspondence.

Information Systems
The candidate must have demonstrated experience in planning, implementation, and managing information systems and related technologies that support the operations and ministries of the church. This is vital as technology continues to permeate and connect our members, community, and ministries. The candidate must be comfortable assessing and making technical decisions regularly regarding audio/video operations, office automation, and media distribution and management.

Personal Ministry
Our ideal candidate will regard this position as a personal ministry, and will practice a management style that is reflective of our Christian faith and doctrine to serve God and our community. Some of these personal skills include the ability to address conflict and discord in a caring and thoughtful way; engaging in management practices that support and nurture staff, peers and laity; and, in general, maintaining an environment of excellence in all programs and tasks.
