probationary period is intended to supply new employees the opportunity to
demonstrate their ability to achieve a goal of a satisfactory level of
performance. It also supplies them with the ability to determine whether the
new position meets all of their expectations. [Church Name] will use this
period to evaluate the employee’s capabilities, work ethics and overall job
performance. The church or the employee can end the employment relationship at
will at any time during or after the probationary period with or without cause
or advance notice.
first 90 calendar days after the employee’s hire date all new and rehired
employees work on a probationary basis. If there are any significant employee absences,
then the probationary period will be extended by the length of the absence. If
the church determines the probationary period doesn’t allow ample time to
evaluate the employee’s performance, the probationary period may be extended
for a specified period.
The employee’s department
manager will work closely with them on all aspects of their training
understanding and responsibilities during this period. [Church Name] encourages
all new or rehired employees to get to know their fellow coworkers and managers
quickly as this tends to help them succeed with our team/organization. We
expect the employee to also become familiar with other relevant information
about the church including the church’s rules and regulations.
Employee/Volunteer Signature & Date - Be sure to have the new church employee or volunteer to read, sign and date this policy and then insert into employee or volunteer's file.

*I do the tithes at the end of the year for a very small outreach in the city of Detroit. They had been paying thousands of dollars every several years trying to keep a database of their donors.
I searched last year for something less costly for them and came across your database (Shepherdbase). It is a blessing and so appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and thank you for Giving To The Lord. Peacemakers Int. in Detroit on Chene street is another ministry you have blessed. - Charlene - U.S.
*This website has been very useful for my ministries with Hospice, the Hospital and Human Services. I recommend this website to any church, ministry or agency that is supporting or ministering to people. God Bless You - Chaplain Dave - U.S.
