There was a time when the idea of a "regional ministry" was picking up steam. "We could do more together than we could independantly". Several of our area classes were forming "Classis Ministry Committees" (CMC) and exploring ambitious goals that led to hiring part time staff to facilitate these goals. Recently, I understand that several of these classes no longer employ staff. Im just wondering whether the idea of classes staff has come and gone, what has happened to the idea of regional ministry or has congregationalism won? Frank

Do any classes have personnel committees? I've noticed that a classis and its committees may employ several part and full time persons (stated clerk, treasurer, campus minister, church planter, ministry developer), and because each person reports to a different classical committee, there may be little coordination of expectations, salary reviews, or evaluations.

How do you provide oversight/supervision for your classis treasurer? We are rewriting the finance committee mandate as our budget process has changed recently and would like some other ideas about effective supervision for our treasurer.
