Within our co-pastorate, we are looking at different ways of reporting on our monthly tasks. Right now, we turn in a monthly report that gives date and brief description of our tasks categorized around - Worship, Pastoral Care, Discipleship/Education, Community Connections/Evangelism, Council, Committee, Classical, and Other. Each pastor turns in this 1 page report to the elders. It is particularly task oriented and seems to take on a business focus.
Are there other ways of reporting that you have found helpful to maintain accountability? We found another denomination that uses 3 additional questions: 1) What was the most spiritually enriching task this past month and why 2)What was the most difficult task this month that you would like the elders' input 3) Briefly assess one of the following: your spiritual relationship, your relationship with the congregation, or your relationship with your family.
