The Free Methodist Church in Canada

GENERAL CONFERENCE RESOLUTION

 

Whereas:  Many smaller churches find the present selection process for a new pastor challenging and leave them without a pastor for a longer time than need be,

Whereas:  Many pastors are left hanging without an appointment longer than need be,

Whereas: Some churches may prefer to be given more direction about who would be a good pastor for their situation,

Therefore, be it resolved that a second option of how a church chooses who they would like to be appointed as their pastor be offered, which would involve, for those churches who chose so, the Bishop and Director of Personnel giving a list of 3 potential pastors to choose from, without requiring the heavy task of the present selection process.
