I have no idea what is happening, but I think that my entire church works for the HVAC company.
- This church is a pretty new church, but it has been growing like crazy.
We have managed to buy our own building, and our church has become completely self-supporting, which was a huge goal of ours. The only thing that the church hasn’t done is managed to afford to pay our staff members. We have a lot of staff members, and they each have their own jobs in order to pay their bills. I just joined this church recently, and I began to realize suddenly that everyone in the church works for the same HVAC company. There are a lot of jobs in our area, and I know that some of these people could probably find a job in a different field, but they all managed to pick the same place. Becoming certified as an HVAC technician isn’t that difficult if you are good at fixing stuff, and I think that most of the staff members are. Furthermore, the owner of the HVAC company understands what each of these members is doing, so he has made it very easy for them to work for the HVAC company and the church. Apparently, the owner of the HVAC company has made some kind of arrangement that is super beneficial. I was recently asked to join the staff of the church, and I jokingly asked if that meant that I had to become an HVAC technician too. While it isn’t a requirement, it certainly was funny.
