The Texas Annual Conference created the Clergy Accountability Ministry Area to set standards for quality of pastoral leadership for local congregations. The Center will assist local pastors, deacons, and elders in living out their call to re-present Jesus Christ by helping them demonstrate accountability to God, the covenant shared among clergy, and the Annual Conference. This area will continue to develop processes adopted by the 2005 Texas Annual Conference which will help clergy, the Center, and the Conference measure accountability.
