      Dude, that's great! Did your church ask you do to it with the consideration of making it your official job description?

        Yup. Our church is re-organizing and re-visioning. A part of that was to have better accountability and mentoring relationships between Elders and Staff. Creation our of job descriptions is part of our evaluation process.
