Much of the "staff" of the church are unpaid volunteers who do the work of the church in positions sometimes paid in other churches. A group rotates the responsibility of cleaning the church. Another group maintains the building and the grounds. Another group leads the music of the worship service. Deacons serve the needs of the church family. All these are also "staff," but are called to serve without pay.
