2019 Clergy Evaluation Process
The West Ohio Conference is implementing a new process for clergy evaluations. There are three distinct parts to the evaluation process: the pastor self-evaluation, the SPRC evaluation of the pastor, and the Smart Goal formation plan guide, which the committee develops in conjunction with the pastor. Because this process is so different than past years, we are requesting that a representative from each church's S/PPRC attend a training event around completion of the evaluation tools. Clergy are welcome to attend these trainings if they'd like. Clergy evaluations are due January 31, 2020. For clergy in new appointments this year, only the Smart Goal plan formation will be due. IMPORTANT: Please download and save the forms to your computer first, then complete them and re-save them to your computer as PDF's.
Workers Compensation Each church should ensure that their employees, including the pastor, are covered under Worker's Compensation. Learn more here.
