Church Systems Task Force Report
The Church Systems Task Force (CSTF) jointly convened by the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits (GBPHB) and the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry (GBHEM) has released the final report on the impact of the employment systems of the Church on clergy physical, emotional, spiritual, social and financial health.
General Conference 2008 directed this task force to bring findings and possible recommendations to General Conference 2012. The 21-member CSTF, chaired by Bishop Hope Morgan Ward (Mississippi Annual Conference), concluded a multi-phased research process in 2010, identifying thirteen factors impacting clergy health, and with this report delivers its recommendations associated with General Conference 2012 legislation.
