Understanding the Importance of Caring for Our Clergy
Understanding the Importance of Caring for Our Clergy in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
This is a manual for the presbyterial committee, often called the Committee on Ministry, whose task is caring for ordained clergy within the presbytery. Even if your presbytery has combined this with caring for those preparing for ordination, the two tasks require different approaches, skills, knowledge, and planning.
Guidance is given on: preaching, continuing education, mentoring, compensation packages, health and ongoing care, leadership referral services, conflict management, churches without pastors, pastor appreciation ideas, Legacy of Ministry recognitions, and more.
