Staff-Parish Relations Committee

The Staff-Parish Relations Committee (SPRC) can be thought of as the Human Resources of the church. The SPRC implements the staffing needs of the church as discerned by the Church Council. This work includes hiring, evaluating, resourcing, and supporting the church’s staff, as well as ensuring the concerns and needs of the congregation are met.
