Job Description for Pastor

A pastor leads a congregation at a Christian church in prayer, song, and general spiritual guidance. In many modern Christian sects, pastoral duties are reserved for men. While the exact requirements for pastors vary depending on their sect, the pastor leads the routine worship services, in which Christians gather in prayer and listen to sermons. A pastor must have strong writing and speaking skills to create and deliver speeches emphasizing the importance of faith in the lives of the congregation's members. A strong command of scripture and biblical history, as well as the ability to interpret and relate this information to their congregation, is a must. Work is traditionally indoors, inside church auditoriums and offices. Although the work schedule varies by church, most pastors lead services at least several times on Sunday, and they often lead a service at another point in the week.
