Resolution to Fund Staff Position for Office of Pastoral Development
Resolved, by Executive Council, meeting in San Juan, Puerto Rico, April 20-23, 2022, recognizing from recent field reports that the Office of Pastoral Development requires additional personnel to support Dioceses more fully in the work of Episcopal elections, while carrying out its other responsibilities, present the following Resolution for consideration at General Convention:
General Convention Resolution A-xxx
Resolved, the House of_____ concurring, that the Committee on Program, Budget & Finance consider an increased budget allocation for the Office of Pastoral Development sufficient to add a permanent senior staff position to that office.
Multiple concerns were heard by the Governance and Operations Committee about the effects of the understaffing situation in the Office of Pastoral Development. It is the committee’s belief that funding a support staff position would be beneficial to the work of the office and those constituent bodies of the church that utilize its services.
