Eldership Review Process

While it is normal to review a pastor's performance regularly, hopefully annually, it is less common for Elderships to do this. But it is just as important. Our suggestion is that an Eldership review its performance prior to a pastor performance review as the Eldership gives the context to the relationship between the Eldership and Pastor. Strengths and failings of the Eldership impact directly upon the pastor.

The review template is available online and will be mediated by an external Association person. Each of the Eldership fills out the template. The results are anonymous to the participants but the aggregated scores can be seen as well as comments. Questions cover areas such as Strategy and Planning, Structure and role, responsibilities and culture. 

Pastor Review Process

Pastors need to know how they are going but this needs to be done in a supportive way. 

A Church Discernment Process

Why is my Church here? Who are we trying to reach? What are our strengths? A discernment process seeks to answer these and many more questions so that the whole church, beginning with the leadership, know what God is calling them to in their specific location.

This is a facilitated process taking several months. There is a cost involved but we believe it is an essential process for all churches to undertake so they can plan confidently knowing God's direction.
