As of May 27, 2013, London Conference became a test site for the Effective Leadership and Healthy Pastoral Relationships project undertaken by General Council 41 (2012). The processes outlined in the presentations below and the flow-chart have been designed to meet the test’s three key goals:
- a) The Pastoral Charge and the Presbytery are accountable for the discernment and articulation of mission and ministry leadership needs, and the support and nurture of pastoral relationships and ministry personnel;
- b) The Conference is accountable for the pastoral relations processes related to placement, oversight and discipline of ministry personnel; and
- c) The courts resource pastoral relations as well as oversight and discipline policies with trained paid accountable staff.
