Earlier we posted a sample social media volunteer description, and today we’re going to show you a sample digital community leaders description. This is a mid-level position between the volunteer 5-6 hours a week level and the full-time position we’ll be posting later.

Ideally, someone with a job like the digital community leader would be in a church where a vision of digital ministry has already been developed.
