In 2009 our church changed from a full-time to a half-time pastorate. Rev. Chuck Forbes began his pastorate at Minetto on July 1, 2009, as a half-time pastor. A Transition Team had been formed to deal with the transition of pastors as well as the transition from a full-time to a half-time pastor. We then made the decision to hire a part-time secretary to handle some of the clerical chores. We knew that laity would need to undertake some of the tasks that had formerly been done by our pastors so we first drew up as comprehensive a list as possible of all of the tasks that needed to be done in order to keep our church functioning as effectively as possible. We assigned each of the tasks to the pastor, the secretary, laity, or some combination.

The pastor was changed to a 3/4 time position in 2012. In 2013, the Administrative Council adopted in principle a plan to increase the Pastor’s compensation 5% each year until it reaches 100% and would be full-time.
