Servant Church’s facilities manager will need to be hospitable, patient and organized, with good communication skills and an appreciation that they are an ambassador for Servant Church to members of the wider community.
Hours will vary with church events, community partner relationships, and building maintenance and repair needs. The facilities manager must be a self-starter who takes initiative and can proactively manage long-term projects, but who also can be available, responsive and on-call for some timely building needs.
They will be responsible for recruiting, organizing, encouraging and interacting with volunteer church members who will assist with maintenance tasks and bring site concerns to attention. The facilities manager will also represent Servant Church to tenants and Asbury UMC through transitions for building use and policies, appreciating the important and sensitive nature of those relationships.
Servant Church meets in a shared, older space that is prone to maintenance issues and problems. The facilities manager will need to show attention to detail and aesthetic awareness. This is needed so that one can both react to issues as they arise and to plan in advance for site needs.
