Question: My pastor's family basically had most of the postions of autority in our church. His sister is the administrative assistant. His other is the minister of music. Her husband is an elder and his brother is over the sound system. There are other postions as well. I need to know what is the postions of administrative assistant, becouse ours is kept abreast of everything and a part of everything. While our elders are kept in the dark with the rest of the congregation. Oh yea, the board consists of 3 family members and two outside family members.

Answer: The responsiblities of an administrative assitant vary from church to church. They are usually determined by whoever the administrative assistant is assisting. Many times pastors put their family members in positions because they feel that they are the only ones they can rely on to do what needs to be done. Sometimes it is a way of controling what goes on more tightly that may really be appropriate. We suggest you make an appointment with your pastor and discuss your concerns with him.
