The quality of relationship between the congregation and all members of the church’s staff is of great importance to the overall success of the church’s ministry and mission.


The Staff Relations Ministry Team exists to fulfill, but not to be limited by, the following essential functions:

  • To promote the well-being of all staff members through expressions of personal care, faithful prayer, and regular encouragement.

  • To help ensure fair and equitable treatment of all staff members in terms of appropriate human resources and employment standards.

  • To inform staff members of valid concerns about their respective ministries and help mediate, if necessary, any conflicts between staff and church members.

  • To supervise directly, on behalf of the BOE, the ministry of the Lead Pastor for the accomplishment of their ministry goals.

  • To supervise indirectly, on behalf of the BOE, the ministry of all other staff as they report directly to the Lead Pastor, for the accomplishment of their ministry goals.


The staff relations team is appointed by the Board and consists of Board Moderator (Chris Konrad), and two other church representatives (George Bergen, Will Peters). They are invited to serve on the team for at least one year, although they may continue to serve indefinitely.
