Appreciating the Church Secretary

Today is Administrative Professional’s Day. According to the U.S. Labor Department there are about 4.1 million secretaries and administrative assistants working today. I think that we can all agree that without them, very little would get done. You can read more about the day at the IAAP’s website.

Today is thus a perfect time to take a minute to personally thank the administrative professional(s) at your churches for everything they do.

Church secretaries have an intimate connection to the life of the church. They know the people, the ministries and the events that make up local church life. And they’re the people who know how to get things done—it’s not just answering phones and printing the bulletin (although it sometimes includes that)!

Have you thanked your church secretary lately? Any fun stories about a secretary who went above and beyond the call of duty to serve the church?
