Recruiting and Employment

 It's not easy to be an employer. The Controller's office can help with most of the issues involved in employing people to further the ministry of your congregation.


This section of the site explains the procedures for filling a permanent clerical opening in your parish.


It includes information about the payroll service offered by the Controller's office to congregations and related ministries in the Diocese – and about medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance.


You can find out here about medical Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), and consult the Lay and Clergy Compensation Guidelines adopted by the Convention of the Diocese.


You can also read the Human Resources Manual used at the diocesan offices, as well as about Sexual Misconduct Training and Regulations regarding overtime, the employment of minors and undocumented immigrants.

A very useful reference book is the "Guide to Human Resources Practices for Lay Employees in Episcopal Churches", it is published by CPG and can be purchased from the Church Publishing group:
