Committee on Ministry
The Committee on Ministry:
• monitors the overall vitality and health of the shared ministries of the congregation
• provides a sounding board in the planning of improvements
• mediates conflicts
• supports the minister's ongoing professional development
“Committees on Ministry are designed to track the heartbeat of ministry within a congregation; how the members . . . take care of themselves and each other, how the lay ministerial leadership serves a congregation; and how the called minister serves the congregation. It seeks to understand, assess, support, and advocate for robust ministry throughout the context of congregational life.”
