Local Church Hiring Guidelines
The local church that requests to hire a pastor at the local level without Conference funds MUST follow the following Guidelines:
Contact with the Personnel/Human Resources department of the Central California Conference.
There must be a formal Church Board action that specifically states that there will be no tithe funds used in the compensation of the hired person.
The potential person must be interviewed and recommended by the Conference Administration; and must be approved by the Conference Personnel and Executive Committees.
The person will be paid through courtesy payroll.
The person will be reviewed annually.
