Roles and responsibilities, overseen by the pastor,  are delegated among various church leaders, boards and committees, including the Trustees Board, the Finance Committee, the Staff-Parish Relations Committee, the Administrative or Church Council, etc. Each requires training and resources to work effectively and cooperatively with fellow laborers in the household of God.  Here we offer links to forms, job descriptions, instructions, reports and other resources for lay church leaders.
