NORTH COAST DISTRICT
In an effort to keep things consistent and impart focused knowledge of important areas of ministry in The United Methodist Churches, the North Coast District has begun offering half-day modules of training to address the specific needs of: the Staff Parish Relations Committee, the Trustee Committee, those that work with Church Finances (day-to-day and reporting), and Office Management responsibilities. The highlights of the modules are presented here.
As there is leadership or staff turnover, please direct new leaders in your church to the videos for an overview of important points to know to help with their positions.
The Staff Parish Module provided training in “The Rule of Christ” - a basic methodology for handling conflict in the local church. This has been taught throughout the Conference as our foundational process for handling conflict. The basic points to be learned from this training is contained in this video. There are also supplemental documents which can be used by SPR members to not only understand their responsibilities, but also have a written guide for "The Rule of Christ" implementation.
