In recent years, we have had S/PPRCs ask if there is a standard process of the evaluation for the pastor and other appointed clergy. Pastors also have asked and have a genuine interest in developing skills and growing in faithfulness as a leader of the church. In response to requests from the districts of our conference, the Bishop and Cabinet approved this evaluation form a few years ago. This assessment has been received well and has been used with much success. We hope that the provided conversation prompts were helpful as the Ministry Assessment Team prayerfully worked on the updates.
We ask that the S/PPRC Chair or appointed Clergy simply introduce the the tool at your next scheduled S/PPRC meeting. In addition, we ask that this document be distributed to each member of the committee, via the printable version, review it together, and comment as necessary so that members of the committee and the clergy may anticipate the process of evaluation. Once all comments are gathered, we ask that you take the evaluation responses and combine them into one assessment and enter them into the online form.
Please complete this form no later than November 30, 2022.
We greatly appreciate your leadership, as clergy and lay members of the Body of Christ. Above all, we affirm the strong leadership and witness of all our clergy who seek to offer their best and to live in a way that inspires faith, hope and love for the sake of Jesus Christ.
Grace and peace to you all,
The District Office Staff
