Role of the Coordinator

I see my job of coordinator as having two primary functions:

  1. To keep the minister informed about members of the congregation who need help and what the Team is doing to help them.
  2. To support the Team.

I meet with the minister fairly regularly to keep him up to date about what the Team is doing and I communicate back to the Team about who needs to be seen and how we might be of help With the Team, it is my job to keep track of which Team member is working with which member of the congregation—I am available for any Team member who is ill or having personal problems. I try to assess the comfort level of Team member in their pastoral care work so that they are not overwhelmed. I and the co-coordinators do backup for any difficulty a Team member encounters.

In addition, along with the co-coordinators, I help plan the budget, write a column in our biweekly newsletter oversee making brochures or other publicity, and keep the Team meeting coordinators Together we do the recruiting and plan the training for the new team. The co- coordinators are instrumental in supporting the coordinator not only in running the Team on a day to day basis and covering when the coordinator is unavailable, but also in planning new initiatives developed for the Team.
