Model accountability at the highest organizational levels.

  1. In A Denomination or A Ministry Organization: Ensure compliance with denominational standards and expectations, includ-ing regular reports.

Believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism… Su-ppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in filthy old clothes also comes in. If you show special attent-ion to the man wearing fine clothes and say, “Here’s a good seat for you,” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or “Sit on the floor by my feet,” have you not discri-minated among your-selves and become jud-ges with evil thoughts? (James 2:1-4).

  1. With Staff: Follow app-roved Church and deno-mination practices in staff selection processes. Adv-ocate for equitable pay and benefits for staff. Pro-vide regular staff team building, affirmation, train-ing, evaluation, and feed-back. Be honest with staff regarding areas to celeb-rate as well as those needing improvement.
  2. With Parishioners: En-sure appropriate access to staff by parishioners. Preach and teach to meet the needs of the entire congregation. Assume responsibility for congre-gational health. When asked for help beyond pe-rsonal compe-tence, refer others to those with requisite expertise.

  1. With The Community: Build God’s Kingdom in cooperation, not com-petition, with other local ministries. Provide Christ-ian ministries to the public as possible. Encourage good citizenship.
  2. With A Prior Congrega-tion: Do not recruit par-ishioners from a previous church without permission from the Pastor. Avoid interfering in the ministry of a previous congrega-tion.
