The Pastoral Review

November 29, 2007

Just the other week I had my annual pastoral review. Strangely -some might say – I rather enjoyed the experience! The following article therefore caught me attention: Pastoral review, process and procedures. Some of the suggestions/points it makes regarding reviews include:

A. Pastoral and personal growth is the goal.
B. The primary importance of on-going patterns of evaluation.
C. Both congregation and pastor(s) need review.
D. Focus on the future.
E. Keep a long-term perspective.
F. The need to review the person, the office, and the task.
G. Consult with your conference.
H. Deal with known conflicts first.
I. Anticipate and make decisions .

I wonder how people elsewhere are reviewed? Are there other materials that people draw upon to conduct them?
