Equipping Our Workers-Part III

Today, we finish our discussion on the third of the “7 E’s- Equipping Our Workers

We concluded last time by saying that one of the things that we are doing to equip our workers is by doing something that it is very common in the secular world, but very uncommon , as it relates to Pastors-by evaluating them.

We said that, at their best, evaluations help us equip our Pastors, by finding out what they do well, so that we can affirm them, and by pointing out the things that we do not do as well, so that we can address those things. In other words, evaluations help us in the equipping process by helping to reveal those areas where our workers need to be equipped.

We decided the best people to evaluate our workers would be to ask the people for whom they work-you, the members of the churches of the South Central Conference.

That may sound obvious, but there was some debate as to whether the church members were the best people to evaluate their Pastors-even all of the church members did not always agree. Some felt, for example, that the people who serve on the local church board were the best people to evaluate the Pastor, because they are the ones who work most closely with the Pastor.

While there is some truth to that, we felt in the end, that there was value in hearing what the “everyday member”-the ones who may not be in leadership, but who see the Pastor go about his/her duties on a week in, week out basis, had to say as well.

What kind of an evaluative tool should we use? We asked our Ministerial Director, Elder Benjamin Jones, Jr., to […]

South Central Has Historic On-Line Videoconference Executive Committee Meeting

History was made on September 15, 2013, when the Executive Committee of the South Central Conference on-line, via videoconference.

The three Administrative Officers, President Dana C. Edmond, Executive Secretary Auldwin T. Humphrey and Conference Treasurer, Mrs. Merkita Mosley, assembled in the President’s Board Room, in the conference office, along with Dr. Bettye Graves, an Executive Committee member who was visiting Nashville that weekend from Jackson, Mississippi, and the new Conference Information Technology  ( IT) Manager, Jermaine Alexander. The rest of the approximately 20 members of the Executive Committee, plus, the Southern Union representative, Union Treasurer, Randy Robinson, accessed the meeting, from the comfort of their homes, using their computers, IPads, IPhones and other electronic devices.

The committee members could see and hear the 3 officers, who were seated together.  Additionally, any member seeking to ask a question or make a comment, was recognized by the chair and the camera was turned on them, so the committee could see and hear anyone who was speaking.

The committee members desirous of speaking, typically typed in their desire to be recognized, and the chair recognized them. Additionally, if the speaker so chose, they could type their question and it could-at the speaker/writers discretion-appear so that only the chair could see it, or, they could arrange it so their question appeared on everyone’s screen.

The conference room was equipped with a monitor so those in the conference room could see the Executive Committee members.

Typically, the Executive Committee meets quarterly. The members of the Executive Committee, who come from across the conference from as far as 500 miles away, have to be transported by car or plane, housed in a hotel, provided per diem and fed two meals-all at the conference expense. Additionally, […]
