Ministry and Personnel Committees

M&P Committees are mandatory committees required by the by-laws of The United Church of Canada under every model of church governance: official board (The Manual, section 189), church board (section 211), and church council (section 226).

The M&P Committee oversees relationships within the community of faith, particularly the roles and functions of paid leaders and employees (such as the office secretary and any custodial staff). The M&P Committee may also be involved in setting expectations for work carried out by volunteers. The M&P Committee has a dual role: it is consultative and supportive.
