NHCC is an Open and Affirming, Still-Speaking congregation of the United Church of Christ; it is a progressive, mission-conscious parish. In addition to these general details, our spirit of collegial work in ministry and joyful engagement between lay and staff colleagues are always at our heart, as is our commitment to serve God and God's people.
We're searching for an office/church administrator to work 20 hours per week for 42 weeks, and 10 hours per week for ten weeks in the summer.
The Office Administrator is the chief coordinator and support person for the basic functions of Newton Highlands Congregational Church—worship, mission, and congregational life—in relation to facilities, scheduling, internal services, data management, and communication. This person works closely with the Senior Minister and CE Director, providing operational and administrative management for the church; and with the Buildings & Grounds Committee, keeping track of and addressing building needs at the church and our properties. It is a decision-making position and supervises one other staff colleague.
It requires organization, communication, coordination, bookkeeping, vendor management as well as some web-work, computer wizardry and basic printing, posting and presenting.
We used to require a bachelor's degree, but recognize that experience can be just as essential. 4+ years experience in a parish or non-profit would be excellent. Comfort with our Open and Affirming policy is essential. These days we are remote sometimes, but must be on-site often, too.
We offer a competitive hourly wage for Newton, 3 weeks paid vacation, personal days and (in accordance with the laws) funds for either health care or annuity payments. Also there is often a poodle in the office in the mornings -- the next office. We'll pursue the search until the office is filled, and we have a long, long job description with lots of details if you wish to learn more. And we hope you do.
