The WM Staff is the heartbeat and lifeblood of Weekend Missions.  It takes a variety of talented people to fulfill the purpose. With so many projects available, there is an area of need where every volunteer can serve.

There are 4 types of Staff Level Positions, in heirarchy order:

DB*-Director:  This person is responsible for a specific ministry and carrys out the vision of that ministry.  This person performs tasks to expectations of management.

DV-Volunteer Director:  This person is responsible for a specific ministry and carrys out the vision of that ministry.  This person has much latitude on what the vision of the ministry will be.

SB*-Staff:  This person performs tasks to expectations of Directors.

SV-Staff Volunteer:  This person wants to help, and is willing to be supervised by a Director(s).

*B: could be one, or a combination of, the following; payroll, stipend(s), lodging, food, clothing, etc.
Staff Positions are great places to start serving.  Both believers and non-believers are welcome in these spots.
Director Positions are reserved for believers in Christ who are living an example of a Godly lifestyle because they are in positions of leadership that often involve teaching others truth in some capacity.  A Director has a home church, a pastor they meet with regularly, and are involved in church activities during the week.

ROMANS 13:1-5 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities,p for there is no authority except that which God has established.q The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted,r and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended.s For the one in authority is Godís servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are Godís servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.tTherefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.u
