A church secretary works as an administrative assistant to pastors and other managers or elders in the congregation. They assist these leaders with typing correspondence, creating documents, distributing memos, and answering email. They also organize documents for the ministry and follow an organizational system that allows any necessary documents to be easily produced on demand. The church secretary is also tasked with collecting, organizing, and distributing necessary information from church clubs, groups, and affiliated organizations.
