Provide cleaning services for Special Church Events

The custodian works independently most of the time. The custodian needs to be able to assess work that needs to be done and schedule it to be done on a timely basis. The custodian will receive suggestions from many different sources and will have to make decisions on what he/she can do within the parameters of his/her job and what will require decisions to be made by the Trustees.

The custodian works more independently than most but must be able to field questions from the entire congregation in a pleasant and helpful manner. The custodian needs to work closely with the Trustees and provide timely information to them concerning the condition of the Church buildings. The custodian is responsible to both the Trustees and SPRC and may need to deal in a constructive way with conflicting messages. The Custodian needs to communicate with the Pastor about Special Church events that may require Custodial attention.
