"give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back."
The Staff-Parish Committee reflects biblically and theologically on the role and work of the pastors and staff as they carry out their leadership responsiblilites.

It shall assist the pastors and staff in assessing their gifts and setting priorities for leadership and service. Together with the committee on lay leadership and the church council, communicate when there is a need for other leaders or for employed staff to perform in areas where utilization of the gifts of the pastors and staff proves an inapporpriate stewardship of time. The committee shall confer with and counsel pastors and staff regarding ministry effectiveness, relationships with congregation, interpret the nature and function of ministry, priorities in the use of gifts, skills, and time.
