    full tim pastor is full time.. part time pastor is bi-vocational meaning that he has a job plus pastors

    These are all good basic things, and of course responsibilities will differ from church to church. But I would be sure to include other “general” staff member responsibilities which frequently apply: budgeting, staff meetings, hospital visitation, calendaring, serving as pastor-on-call on weekends, etc.
