Mutual Ministry

Our Lutheran understanding of the church sees ministry as being shared by all the baptized people of God.  At no time can we assume that only the pastor and lay professionals are responsible for ministry.  The whole people of God have a ministry with and to one another.  It is a mutual ministry.  Out of this understanding of ministry emerges the rational behind a congregational mutual ministry committee.

A Mutual Ministry Committee will provide a place to begin to define a vision for building of the body of Christ within the congregation.  The ministry of any pastor and congregation is strengthened when there exists a small group who act out of mutual concern for the pastor and the congregation.  This mutual ministry becomes specific in a variety of ways. The Mutual Ministry Committee will provide a place for the congregation and pastor to define roles of the church leaders and role of pastor.  It is a place for open honest dialog about ministry and a sounding board for the pastor.

Areas in which Mutual Ministry Committee can be utilized:

  • Develop open honest communication about expectations, attitudes, and concerns within the congregation, community, and staff.

  • To identify early the warning signs of misunderstanding.

  • To provide positive feedback and affirm pastor.

  • Become a listening post for pastors and the people.

  • Serve as a place where pastors and congregation members can “test” new ideas.

  • The Mutual Ministry Team is to serve as a listening post for members of the congregation.

  • Support the pastor in the planning of continuing education opportunities.

  • Sharing with the pastor the expectations of the congregation and provide for an annual evaluation of the ministry of the pastor and the mission of the congregation.

  • Annually review compensation, housing, pensions, and other benefits provided for the pastor.
