– Assignment 7

Consider the following scenario:
The pastor of a large local church has called you in as a consultant to help him determine the best organizational structure to use for the church. The church has grown rapidly over the last few years and has added several personnel, but it has no formal organization chart, and lines of authority and responsibility are becoming blurred. The staff consists of the pastor, three assistant pastors, a youth minister, a director of religious education, two maintenance workers, a bulletin editor, a director of music, three administrative assistants, and a bookkeeper. Additionally, the church employs a part-time associate choir director, and a part-time nursery coordinator.
Develop an organizational chart for the church that addresses division of labor, authority, and span of control. In a one- to two-page report, present your proposed organizational chart and describe your reasoning for developing this organization chart and the reporting relationships.  Explain to the pastor why your plan will be effective for running his church.
You can find tools for producing an organizational chart using SmartArt tools in Word or PowerPoint.
