Staff/Pastor-Parish Relations Committee

The Staff/Pastor-Parish Relations Committee (SPRC) has the primary responsibility to work with staff so that the mission of the church is realized. This committee serves as the liaison between the congregation and the staff.

Duties (as specified in the Book of Discipline) are:
1. Educating and reminding both the staff and the congregation to focus on working together toward the mission of the church by promoting unity and encouraging, strengthening, nurturing, supporting, and respecting the pastor(s), staff, and their families.
2. Leading conversation between the congregation and the staff/pastor abut ministry direction, including recommendations about staff positions to carry out the work of the church.
3. Developing and recommending written policy and procedures on employment of non-appointed staff, including provision for insurance, pension, and severance pay.
4. Assessing job performance of the staff/pastor at least annually for the purpose of realigning staff position descriptions with the mission of the church.
5. Conferring and consulting with the district superintendent.
6. Supporting lifelong learning and spiritual renewal for all staff (continuing education).
7. Identifying and supporting individuals from the congregation whom God seems to be calling for ordained ministry.
