All Ministry Personnel who are in a call or multiyear appointments must complete the Annual Assessment process. The assessment does not need to be done for ministers who are in a short term appointment for one year or less.
The primary purpose of this assessment process is to nurture healthy pastoral relationships. This assessment tool will help an M&P committee and ministry personnel to have a conversation together, and come forward with agreed upon goals that will nurture growth in the pastoral relationship. This process is meant to be entered into prayerfully and with consideration for the ministry of the ministry personnel over the last year. The results of this assessment and goal setting are to be tools for guiding the ministry of the ministry personnel and Community of Faith over the course of the coming year.
