¶851 MULTIPLE STAFF APPOINTMENTS


When a local church determines that additional appointed pastoral staff is needed, the lead pastor shall consult the director of leadership development and church health before any local action is taken. The director of leadership development and church health shall represent the conference in the selection and recommendation for appointment.


Appointed assistant/associate pastors who desire a change shall notify the director of leadership development and church health and the lead pastor. Official boards that desire a change of appointed staff members shall notify the director of leadership development and church health and the staff member. No change shall be made without due process.


If a new lead pastor is to be appointed, it is not mandated by the conference that other staff members must submit their resignations. Each individual church will need to create policy in this regard. (See ¶375.2)
