"Guidelines to Writing Job Offer Letters"What is a job offer letter? It is a letter with the purpose to generally extend an offer of employment to an individual and to communicate some basic benefit and employment information about the position offered.
Many churches, organizations and even christian schools use offer letters to communicate the terms of employment to potential employees. However, always remember that offer letters seem simple to write but they can get you into legal problems if you're not careful.
Here are guidelines when writing your job offer letter:
It is good practice to always have a job description for every position you fill; however, the offer letter is not the place to address specific job duties. If possible, attach the job description to offer letter or better yet provide one during the job interview or after the person has been hired.
Employment-At-Will language might
appear too formal or sound like "legalese" but it is extremely important to include it your offer letter. Without this language, courts have construed offer letters as contracts. It allows the employee to end employment whenever he or she chooses, but it also gives the ministry the right to terminate an employee with or without cause for any reason not prohibited by law.
The final portion of the letter requests that the applicant formally accept the offer. It's also the opportunity to end the letter on an upbeat note.
New Church Job Description SamplesWhat is a job description? A broad, general and written statement of a specific job, based on the findings of a job analysis. Generally, the description includes duties, purpose, responsibilities, scope, and working conditions of a job along with the job's title, and the name or designation of the person to whom the employee reports.
Job Descriptions for church staff can be a very effective way to organize your church employees. Unless the jobs of your church employees or volunteers are described and defined they will not be able to work as effectively as they should.
