Session approved a Staffing Model for 2019 as proposed by the TCPC Staffing Model Task Force which was formed in the spring of 2018. The members of the task force are: Stephanie Arvin, Barclay Bradshaw, Anna Bryant, Jenn Caulder, Tracy King, Zach Parker, Barry Watkins, and Charlie Wood with Rebekah Johns serving as the staff liaison.
The purpose of the task force was to discern how the church can position itself to best live out our mission and achieve our ministry in the allocation of staff resources and to address the need to reduce personnel expenditures given restraints in our operating budget. Currently the total amount spent on personnel costs exceeds best practice ratios.
With the values that TCPC holds dear in mind, the task force made the difficult decision to propose closing the Associate Pastor position in the spring of 2019. The position will remain filled until May 31, 2019. Session and ministry teams will work out the details of this plan and support Pastor Todd Davidson as he pursues other calls/opportunities in the next year. This congregation has a history of supporting our pastors through difficult transitions, and Session believes that TCPC will support Todd and his family during this transition. In the future, we hope to grow in size and budget and be able to re-open the Associate Pastor position. TCPC has very strong lay leadership, talent and commitment, and through faith and perseverance, we will be guided through this transition together.
