Maple Trail consultants Shane Garrison and Phillip Brunner are concluding a Personnel Development consultation with Columbia Baptist Church in Columbia, KY. In Feb-March 2009, Maple Trail led CBC through an extensive stewardship emphasis which has resulted in record giving for the church.
Church leaders then asked Maple Trail to come back a second time to help the church develop their personnel structure. During this consultation, seven job descriptions were created:
- Senior Pastor
- Minister of Music
- Minister of Students
- Christian Life Center Director
- Church Secretary
- Financial Secretary
Additionally, Maple Trail conducted four compensation studies using the Southern Baptist Convention Compensation database. These studies will better inform key leaders on the ranges of salary and compensation for their church staff.
Finally, Maple Trail is working with the Constitution and By-Law Committee in editing their governing document to match the changes made during the consultation process.
The entire Personnel Development consultation was completed in just over a month.
