You may wish to use the sample that follows as a guide in developing your church Policy and
Procedures Manual. This sample has been compiled from those in use by a number of churches
over the past several years. Improve it, change it, and use it any way that works for your church.
You will want to pull together a committee or team to work through this process. The committee
or team should be widely representative of your congregation. This is an important assignment
and should not be rushed. Prayerful consideration should be given to what should go into the
Policies and Procedures Manual, and what should be omitted.
It is best to prepare these documents when the church is in harmony, with no major crisis on the
horizon. Churches tend to deal with issues involved in policies and procedures when they have
just gone through a conflict and feel the urgency to “fix” something so they will never have that
problem again. Churches cannot develop an adequate document under stress and disharmony.
The experience should be a positive educational process for the members of the committee or
team, and for the church membership.
Make the documents positive instruments to enable the church to go about its work in an orderly
manner. Avoid making them appear to be negative reactions to church crises.
Try to keep the Policies and Procedures as simple as possible. Avoid complicated statements
that are easily misunderstood. This is not easy to do; but it is possible with care. This will also
help the church to avoid unnecessary conflict in the future.
Keep the Policies and Procedures Manual up to date. They should be working documents, not
items for the archives only. Provide for their periodic review and essential modification.
When the church has made its decision about the proposed documents, dismiss the special
committee or team with the thanks of the church for their good work. Once the documents have
been approved the work of the committee or team is complete.
Remember, this is only a guide! Adjust the language and content to fit your congregation. Other
policies and procedures should be added to meet the needs of your congregation.
