• How can strained relationships between pastor and congregation be mediated before a major conflict occurs? • What happens when the minister resigns? • How does the church move smoothly into a new pastoral relationship? • What can the church do to aid the pastor's professional development and support his or her personal well-being?
This is the work of the Pastoral Relations Committee.
Emmett Johnson explains:
• How to organize the committee• The commitee's functions• The benefits it offers to the overall ministry of the church.
By opening up free-flowing channels of communication between professional leadership and congregation, the Pastoral Relations Committee can contribute immeasurably to the success of your ministry.
