Job Description:

The Executive Assistant is responsible for the administrative and other support of the Minister of Operations and, by extension, the Lead Pastor. The primary function of E.A. will be performing administrative support including: data management, reports, and communications with various staff and ministry leaders on behalf of the Minister of Operations. Additional responsibilities will include event planning and coordination, project management as assigned, event bookings, calls and emails on behalf of the Minister of Operations, and occasionally making arrangement for meals at meetings or events. This role will also be working with other LJCF staff to support the needs of the various, seasonal projects and events.

The Executive Assistant reports directly to the Minister of Operations at LJCF.
