Consultation Forms for Clergy and Pastor Parish Relations Committees

We have new forms this year.  Use the new forms rather than an old one. These forms are found on the Conference website:   http://www.okumc.org/profile_forms  

The SPPRC should fill out the local church profile.   SPPRC should also do a clergy assessment form on each clergy person appointed to the church.  The guidelines should be followed and the SPPRC should be sure to share with each clergy person the assessment form that is on them personally.  Healthy communication pays off in a variety of ways for the ministry of the church and feedback helps the clergy person in their desire to always become better.  It is helpful for each clergy person to have this opportunity to have a conversation with SPPRC.

Each appointed clergy person should fill out the pastor profile or if they are an Associate they should fill out the profile for Associates.

Extension Ministers should fill out the extension ministry form.

The SPPRC and the clergy should send these directly to the District Office no later than by October 15th.  They are not charge conference forms and are intended to be confidential.

Do you have a staff person who is doing nothing for your church?

Sounds crazy, doesn't it?  It might be the case, though.  The people at the UMC Foundation would like for you to think of them as part of your church staff.  They are ready and willing to help the church with all kinds of financial issues.  They need to be asked and invited, though.  I recently attended the "Faith and Money Academy" they offered and was amazed to discover even more of what they are able to help with.  Take a look at their website, give them a call, and make use of this amazing resource:   http://okumf.org/
