I worked at Westside Family Church full-time (More than 3 years)
Westside Family Church is an amazing church where people genuinely love Jesus and serve out of that love. It's fast paced, fun, and brilliant things get done. Also, I've known the staff to be people who are incredibly creative, wise and humble. Work hours are flexible, family time is encouraged, generous PTO, availability to interact with staff at every level of the organization.
Compensation is less than many staff are qualified for as I would expect for any Non-Profit filled with people who love the mission. You're surrounded by staff (and volunteers) who give 150% so it's easy to feel the peer pressure to over perform.
Advice to Management
Thanks for leading an amazing church. You're in our prayers all of the time. Keep finding ways for your staff to excel, to be great, to advance... they all want to do great things for the kingdom. Keep showing them how they can grow as individuals - they don't always know how on their own.
