Pastoral Relations and Staff

The mission of the Pastoral Relations and Staff Ministry is to serve as the personnel committee of the Session. As such, we provide a link between the Session and the pastor and staff. When necessary we are the sounding board, a support system, evaluator, recruiter, employer, arbiter and advocate. We recommend personnel action to the Session, including the employment of staff, the terms of call of the pastor, and the salaries and benefits for the staff.

Now that renovations in the building have been completed, we look forward to the future of our church. In particular, we will examine the long range plan and work to adapt to the recommendations. Our committee performs “behind the scenes,” but we are pleased to recognize the wonderful staff at Paxton Presbyterian Church.

Generally, we meet at 6:30 on the third Wednesday of each month, with the exception of July and August. We also meet as necessary when circumstances dictate, such as to hire staff, review staff on a yearly basis, review the working conditions, or establish Terms of Call.
