Staff Pastor Parish Relations – SPPRC
The Staff-Parish Relations Committee is the administrative unit in a local church where staff and congregational interests are integrated to focus on the mission of the church.
The committee relates to all staff, both bishop-appointed staff and employed staff….The SPPRC has some of the same functions of a personnel office or Human Resources department in other organizations.
The SPPRC has primary responsibility to work with staff so that the mission of the church is realized. The SPPRC should have a clear understanding of your local church’s mission and vision, built upon the mission of the wider Church.
The SPPRC works with individuals and groups, including: the lead pastor, the lay staff, the congregation (individually and corporately), candidates for licensed and ordained ministry, the district superintendent, the United Methodist conference and general church staff.
