CHURCH CLERK RESOURCES

 

WHAT DOES THE CHURCH CLERK DO?

The church clerk is the official church historian and keeper of the church records. These records should be carefully preserved and stored in a fire-proofed file cabinet. At the expiration of the term of office, they are to be passed to the newly-elected clerk. All records and account books of the various church offices are the property of the church. As such, they are to be surrendered at the expiration of the term of office, or at any time during the term at the request of the church.
