    I have been working at LifeChurch.tv full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Their dedication to professional and personal development is unlike anything I've seen before.

    Cons

    Salary doesn't quite compete with the corporate world (but comparable for most non-profits). Benefits are pretty good, so that helps a little.

    Pros

    Loose, open environment that offers flexibility while keeping high expectations on you work. This high feedback environment provides ample opportunity to be more self-aware and allows for further development of your current skills and development of new skills. Working at the Central offices provides more of a for-profit organizational structure, but still offers that support that your would expect from a church. Working here allows me to use my skills and professional back ground while assisting in furthering the Kingdom of God.

    Cons

    Leadership talks about raising up young leaders, while this is true at the campuses, it is not as true at Central. This may be caused by long working tenures of those in leadership positions. If coming from the professional, for-profit world, be willing to take a pay cut, after all, this is still a Church.

    Advice to Management

    Show more of a willingness to promote younger leaders within the Central offices. Leadership offers great vision and support to all staff.

    Pros

    Very high bar organization. Strong leadership and development culture. Clear vision and mission. Not your typical church...not your typical church staff.

    Cons

    Starting salary is on the low side compared against similar positions at larger churches.

    Pros

    You are constantly encouraged to develop your leadership, skills, and strengths. Every person on your team cares about your development and your health as a person and an employee. We have an amazing 401K plan, constant room for growth and chances to be promoted. If you are skilled and effective you will be used to your capacity, and then you'll learn to grow that capacity and they'll use that too. And you never feel like they are abusing you because you know what you're doing is having such a large impact on people's lives that you are excited and happy to pour everything you have into your work.

    Cons

    The schedule can be hard for families. If you are at a campus, you work every weekend. You have to be very intentional about what you are spending your time off doing, especially if you have a family. But it allows you to see what is important in life!

    Advice to Management

    You guys are doing awesome! Thank you for caring about us as people and not just employees. Your decision to increase the 401k contributions astounded me. I just need to hang in there for a little while to receive the benefits :) 9.5 years left to go :)

    Pros

    I love the culture and environment. There is always an opportunity to receive feedback, to learn, and to grow and to be who God has called you to be. I love the fact that we build relationships with each other and with our volunteer teams. I also enjoy the fact that I get to use my God given strengthens and talents to serve the organization and further the kingdom.

    Cons

    There is always something to do, always something to improve, always someone to reach out to; ministry is 24/7, and you must find the balance between work, family, and personal time with God.

    Pros

    There are so many pros to this job. My co-workers are truly another family to me. For the first time in my life, I love coming to work each and every day. I miss this place when I'm not here. The leadership is phenomenal throughout the line. Everyone encourages and provides feedback for constant growth. Self discovery and personal growth are key to this job and LifeChurch makes it so easy to better myself as a person, employee, Christian, friend, and mom.

    Cons

    This is something different from anything I have ever done before. It took a lot of learning and patience. The tough days are tough, but the good days out weigh that for sure. It is definitely a sink or swim culture, so you have to push yourself harder than ever before.

    Advice to Management

    The management structure is amazing. It encourages growth both personally and professionally. Management also does a great job of honoring the work/life balance and making sure our minds, bodies, and spirits are well taken care of.

    Pros

    The culture is incredible, the opportunity for personal growth is pretty amazing and the staff are really genuine.

    Cons

    If you're not used to feedback, or personal growth this place could be really challenging.


  11. I wouldn't want to do anything else anywhere else!

    I have been working at LifeChurch.tv full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The vision and values of LifeChurch.tv are so clear, it makes working here a pleasure. People follow clarity. So from an organizational standpoint, all staff members are very aware of how and why we make decisions. From a vision standpoint, the goal is leading people to become fully devoted followers of Christ. I believe that everyone on our team sees that as the most important calling in the world. Because what we do is so important we gladly give up something we love for something we love even more. We are irrationally generous. We have fun at work because there's nothing better than serving God with people you love. We value storytelling. So we constantly see the evidence of what God is doing and how people's lives are changed. We tell stories of life change all the time. So every single staff member sees that their contribution is important and valued. From a development standpoint, we believe that everyone is responsible to own their own growth. And there is literally not a day that goes by that we don't learn about a new learning or development opportunity. If someone isn't growing personally and professionally at LifeChurch.tv, its because they have made a personal choice to not take advantage of the multitude of opportunities.

    Cons

    We really believe that what THE church does (leading people to Jesus) is the most important thing in the world, so some people are challenged by the high demands of working here.
