A calling implies mutuality between those rostered people being called and the agency or congregation issuing the call. This mutuality means that congregations and other ministry sites are to live for the wellbeing of the rostered leaders that they call, and rostered leaders are to live for the wellbeing of the communities into which they are called, so that together we might live in Christ as mission-centers, with mission-centered congregations. We in turn get to participate in making Christ known in our lives together, making Christ known in our communities, and making Christ known in the world.
2021 Compensation Guidelines
Since we did not have a Synod Assembly this year, our Synod Council approved a basic update to our Compensation Guidelines for Rostered Ministers reflecting a suggested 1.5% increase to recommended base salary.
