Standards for Parsonages 2018

The Book of Disciple does not mandate a parsonage committee however, it is strongly recommended that each local church Church Conference form a parsonage committee. The committee will follow-up to assure timely resolution of parsonage problems affecting the health of the pastor or pastor's family. The chairperson of the committee on pastor-parish relations, the chairperson of the board of trustees, and the pastor shall make an annual review of the church-owned parsonage to assure proper maintenance.
