2019 Consultation Forms: Due Nov. 14th

posted on October 08


It is consultation season. Thank you for serving the congregation in leadership. The collaborative work between laity leadership and the clergy of a congregation makes all the difference as you bless the Kingdom and the church.

As we prepare to think about the next appointment year, it is time to hear the congregation’s and pastor's perspective of whether the pastoral/congregational relationship is one that should be continued in the 2020-2021 appointment year. As we speak in love and grace, a healthy congregation is the result.

Please complete the enclosed PPRC Consultation Form as a group, have the committee members and pastor sign it, and return it to the district office no later than November 14, 2019.  , Click on the name to download the forms. 

Every pastor serving under appointment is required to complete a Pastor Consultation Form. The PPRC at each church is required to complete a form for that senior/lead pastor. 

If you have questions about this process, please watch this video and call the district office. https://vimeo.com/298600541/d1326d7dea
 
The Bishop and District Superintendents will gather for a retreat in early January to review these requests.  What you report becomes one of the primary guides they use in the appointment process.  PPRCs or Pastors may also ask for a face-to-face conversation with the District Superintendent if there are additional issues you wish to discuss.

Please make sure all forms are completed and signed before submitting them to the District Office by November 14th!
