"Click here" for the 2016 One on One scheduled - updated as of July 18, 2016
Dear Pastors and SPRC Committees,
We want to assure you that this evaluation is important to the work of the DS and the Cabinet and that we read the evaluations for our district carefully. We would remind you that this is an evaluation of the ministry of both the congregation and pastor. We ask you to begin with the Bible Study suggested in the evaluation as an important way to review and reflect on the ways that you as a congregation and faith community are the living and loving presence of Christ to each other and the world around us.
Some SPRC committees find it helpful to engage the congregation in this process as a way to broaden the conversation about the ministry of the congregation. It is also a great way for you to share with the conference leadership what is happening, both good and bad, within your local church. Through this sharing we are better able to work together to support the ministries of your congregation.
We would ask that if at all possible the evaluations be sent to your District Office at least one week prior to your scheduled meeting. If for some reason this is not possible please be in touch with your District Superintendent.
Thank you for your prayerful reflection and feedback about the ministry and mission of your local congregation and your pastor’s leadership in that area.
Blessings to you,
Appointive Cabinet of the New England Annual Conference
Seok Hwan Hong
