A Pastoral Relations Commitee can be one of the healthiest ways a church can support the leadership of its pastor and ensure healthy communication between the pastor and the local congregation. Here are some resources for forming and maintaining an effective team: 
 
The Pastoral Relations Committee. A free downloadable guidebook from the United Church of Christ made possible through the Strengthen the Church special offering.
The Pastoral Relations Committee Member. A UCC guide on the roles and responsibilities of such a position.
 
Evaluations of joint goals set by both pastor and church are best completed by a separate Personnel Committee. Here are some resources that can help guide that process: 
Completing The Circle: Reviewing Ministries in the Congregation by David R. McMahill
