The role of the Congregational Coordinator includes project management, coordination of the congregational activities, and monitoring the implementation of the ministry plan. Some administration and practical supervisory responsibilities are included in this role.

The Congregational Coordinator is supervised by the Senior Pastor. The two of you will be working very closely together. This requires that you are coordinated as you are two different people but speaking with one voice.
