Wellbeing in Ministry


Effective pastoral ministry contributes to vitality in the local church. What can a local congregation do to create an environment for effective pastoral ministry? That is what this resource is all about.  We’ve identified five key areas that, when done well, can contribute to pastoral health, effectiveness, and longevity in ministry.

Therefore, we encourage every congregation in MC USA to use these resources to help create a healthy workplace for your pastor(s).

If you have any questions about how best to use these resources, please contact your area conference minister or Michael Danner (evaluations, PCRC, salary guidelines) and Duncan Smith (Wellbeing checklist, The Corinthian Plan).
