CLICK HERE for the Pastoral Evaluation Form
June 5, 2013
To the Pastors of the Metro Boston Hope District:
It is difficult to believe that we have almost completed another conference year. What a wonderful privilege it has been to travel the district and spend time with laity and clergy. The testimonies, mission projects, outreach efforts, and myriad ministries on our district evidence the deep spiritual witness we share.
As spring flows into summer and we prepare for summertime fun, it is also time to prepare for our next year together. Our journey together will begin with our One-on-One Holy Conversations. A significant part of our time will be spent discussing the Congregational and Pastoral Evaluation. That evaluation can be obtained at www.neumc.org/forms/detail/1090. Please do not view this as just another statistical form, or simply answer “yes” or “no”. Rather, I invite you to prayerfully use this tool as a vehicle for exploring where ministry has been fruitful, where stagnation exists, and how God is calling you to vision for a more transformative future. This should be achieved through individual discernment, and then collaborative discussion with your SPRC.
Please complete the form and return it to the District Office two weeks prior to our Holy Conversation. This will permit me time to prayerfully reflect upon your answers and come prepared to engage in meaningful dialogue. It will also provide time to think about how I can assist you in your ministry. I look forward to creatively discerning how we can work together to make a difference in each community. I ask you to join me in prayer for our district, conference, and those we serve. If you have any questions, please call Josephine Sierra in the district office at (978) 682-8055 x200.
Your servant in Christ,
LaTrelle Miller Easterling
