Why have a Church Employee Handbook?

The employee handbook provides guidance and information related to the Church’s mission, values, policies, procedures, and guidelines in a written format. The usual practice is to present the handbook during the new employee’s orientation session.  Important information is highlighted during this session to the employee, but it is also a priority to stress that the employee reads the handbook and refers to it constantly. The Church Employee Handbook helps all employees be on the same page and on the same team.

It’s in the best interest that Church Employers require every employee to sign an acceptance form, to provide proof of having received the handbook which you adjust to cover the procedures, policies etc of your Church, to cover the Church if an incident arises in the future. The acknowledgment should be saved in an employee’s personnel file as a way for the organization to establish that the employee was made aware of the policies.
