RESOLUTION #3

RESOLUTION TO 2021 ANNUAL CONFERENCE SESSION

Presented by the Conference Commission on Equitable Compensation Resolution to Set Minimum Salaries for Calendar Year 2022

The Conference Commission on Equitable Compensation has the disciplinary responsibility to recommend to the Annual Conference standards of clergy support (¶625); and

After prayerful consideration and thoughtful examination of the available data, the Commission recommends a 1.3% increase for next year. This increase is based on the 1.3% cost of living increase recommended by the Social Security Administration for 2021. After reviewing multiple criteria, the Commission on Equitable Compensation has deemed the Cost-of-Living Adjustment the best way for us to fairly set minimum salaries in future years.

We therefore ask that our community of the Peninsula-Delaware Annual Conference set minimum salaries at the following amounts for 2022:

Full Elder and Full Member Deacon: $40790 Provisional Elder, Provisional Deacon $37670

and Associate Member:

Full Time Local Pastor: $35235

We also ask for the following:

Minimum salaries be increased by $200 per year of service since last conference membership/ordination status change, up to 20 years of service.

Continuing Education minimum amount be set at $800 for 2022. Clergy should receive paid leave to attend continuing education events.

Reimbursement for travel expenses in the next year be at the rate set by the Internal Revenue Service for 2022. The Commission also recommends that pastors be reimbursed for all tolls and parking expenses incurred in the performance of their pastoral duties.

Churches which have elected to pay a housing allowance set the amounts of said allowance commensurate with the cost of living in their local community. This amount should cover the fair market value of housing for the pastor and all associated utilities costs.

(7)

Clergy continue to be allowed to preach one week each year for one of the following events: Walk to Emmaus, Chrysalis, Camp Pecometh or any other engagement that enhances the spiritual life of persons of this Conference and that this service shall not affect the clergy’s vacation time or the clergy’s regular pay from their appointed charge. Other qualifying engagements will be determined by the Commission on Equitable Compensation on a case-by-case basis.

Archives and History

Resolution on Zoar United Methodist Church, Odessa, Delaware.

4 5

Whereas Zoar United Methodist Church came to life in 1845 to provide a meeting

6

place for the enslaved and free Black community in Odessa, Delaware, to fully participate

7

and lead in Christian worship; and whereas Zoar Church and its pastors, Rev.’s John G

8

Manluff, Joshua Brinkley and Samuel Dale were pioneers of “the first Conference for

9

Colored Preachers,” the Delaware Annual Conference; and whereas local legend

10

attributes Zoar Church as a resting place for enslaved freedom seekers on the way north

11

to liberty; and whereas Zoar Church faithfully served multiple generations of Odessa,

12

Delaware families for over 125 years, attending to each generation’s spiritual needs,

13 14

Therefore, let it be resolved that on the recommendation of the Commission on Archives

15

and History, the Peninsula-Delaware Annual Conference designates Zoar United

16

Methodist Church, Odessa, Delaware, as a Conference Historic Site.

RENTAL/HOUSING ALLOWANCES FOR RETIRED OR DISABLED MINISTERS OF

2

THE PENINSULA-DELAWARE CONFERENCE

3

Presented by Conference Board of Pensions

4 5

The religious denomination known as The United Methodist Church has and functions

6

through Ministers of the Gospel who are duly ordained or licensed; and

7 8

The practice of The United Methodist Church is to provide a parsonage or a rental

9

allowance as part of the gross compensation for each of its active ordained or licensed

10

ministers; and

11 12

Pensions paid to retired and disabled ordained or licensed ministers of The United

13

Methodist Church are considered as deferred compensation and are paid to said retired

14

and disabled ordained or licensed ministers in consideration of previous, active service;

15

and

16 17

The Internal Revenue Service has recognized that the Peninsula-Delaware Annual

18

Conference is the appropriate organization to designate a housing/rental allowance for

19

retired and disabled ordained or licensed ministers who are members of this Conference;

20 21

1. An amount equal to 100% of the pension payments received during the year

22

2022 be and is hereby designated as a rental/housing allowance for each

23

retired and disabled ordained or licensed minister of The United Methodist

24

Church who is or was a member of the Peninsula-Delaware Conference at

25

the time of his or her retirement:

26 27

2. This rental/housing allowance shall apply to each retired and disabled

28

ordained or licensed minister who has been granted the retired relation or

29

placed on disability leave by the Peninsula-Delaware Conference and

30

whose name and relationship to the conference is recorded in the Journal

31

of the Peninsula-Delaware Conference and in other appropriate records

32

maintained by the conference.

33 34

3. The pension payment to which this rental/housing allowance applies shall

35

be the pension payment resulting from all service of such retired and

36

disabled ordained or licensed minister from all employment by the local

37

church, Annual Conference or institution of The United Methodist Church or

38

of any former denomination that is now a part of The United Methodist

39

Church, or from any other employer who employed the minister to perform

40

services related to the ministry and who elected to make contributions to

41

the pension funds of The United Methodist Church for such retired minister’s

42

pension.

43 44

NOTE: The rental/housing allowance which may be excluded from a minister’s gross

45

income is limited to the lesser of (1) the amount of the rental/housing allowance

(17)

designated by the minister’s employer or other appropriated body, (2) the amount actually

47

expended by the minister to provide his or her housing, or (3) the legally-determined fair

48

rental value of the parsonage or other housing provided. As specified in Rev. Rul. 71-290

49

C.B. 92, “the only amount that will qualify for exclusion under section 107 (2) of the Code

50

as a “rental allowance” is an amount equal to the fair rental value of the home, including

51

furnishings and appurtenances such as a garage, plus the cost of utilities.”

52 53

We therefore ask that our community of the Peninsula-Delaware Annual

54

Conference adopt this resolution effective January 1, 2022

RESOLUTION TO 2021 ANNUAL CONFERENCE SESSION 2

Presented Conference Board of Pensions 3

4

Authorize change in Healthcare provider 5

6

WHEREAS, the Peninsula-Delaware Conference has utilized Blue Cross Blue Shield of 7

Delaware for many years as its Healthcare provider 8

9

WHEREAS, in 2013 Blue Cross Blue Shield of Delaware merged with Highmark 10

11

WHEREAS, since the merger there have been a number of administrative issues that 12

have continued to go unresolved. The primary source of these issues involves the 13

administration of the HSA and HRA accounts. There have been three transitions to new 14

HSA/HRA third party administrators since 2013. Each of these transitions has presented 15

challenges for our participants in assuring that proper balances have been transferred to 16

the new administrator and learning how to access their HSA/HRA funds. 17

18

WHEREAS, the Board of Pensions, through our consultants at Mercer, evaluated other 19

potential insurance carriers. 20

21

WHEREAS, CIGNA has quoted a premium with a 4% reduction (a savings of approx. 22

$100,000) for coverage that is identical to our current plan. 23

24 25

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED the Board of Pension recommends that the Healthcare 26

Insurance provider for Peninsula-Delaware Conference be transferred to CIGNA effective 27

January 1, 2022 with a plan design that provides benefits identical to the current plan. 28

29

We ask that our community of the Peninsula-Delaware Annual Conference adopt 30

this resolution. 31

RESOLUTION #17 1 2 HOUSING POLICY 3 4

A. All charges in the Peninsula-Delaware Annual Conference shall provide housing 5

for their pastor(s). Housing shall consist of a housing allowance or a parsonage 6

that meets the Conference parsonage standards together with payment of utility 7

costs. If the charge provides a parsonage that meets the minimum requirements of 8

the Conference parsonage standard, they shall have met the housing requirement, 9

and will not have to provide a housing allowance. The pastor is not required to live 10

in the provided charge parsonage. If the pastor chooses not to live in the provided 11

charge parsonage, a housing allowance is not required, but may be negotiated 12

between the charge, pastor and District Superintendent. The use of a parsonage 13

and its fair rental value is considered taxable income for social security tax. This 14

housing requirement applies solely to full-time clergy, recognizing that housing for 15

retired ministers and part-time clergy is subject to variables which can be best 16

negotiated by the District Superintendent on a case-by-case basis. 17

18

B. When a parsonage is not provided, the charge shall pay the appointed pastor a 19

housing allowance negotiated by the District Superintendent between the pastor 20

and the charge. Current federal guidelines allow for the housing allowance to be 21

income that is free of federal and state income tax, but not social security tax. It is 22

highly suggested that the annual housing allowance be 10% of the average market 23

value of homes in the ministry area that meet the Conference parsonage standard. 24

In the case of a clergy couple, paragraph D applies. 25

26

C. If a parsonage is provided and the district Board of Church Location and Building 27

determines that it is not habitable, the District Superintendent shall instruct the 28

minister to provide his/her own housing. In such case, the charge will be required 29

to pay the minister a housing allowance based upon the formula in paragraph B 30

above. 31

32

D. In the case of a clergy couple serving separate charges, the procedures to be 33

followed are: 34

35

1. If no parsonage is provided by either charge, each charge will provide a 36

housing allowance to each pastor based upon paragraph B. The District 37

Superintendent(s) shall negotiate the amount of housing allowance with each 38

charge. 39

40

2. If there is no habitable parsonage, as determined by the District Board on 41

Church Location and Building, the provision of paragraph D.1. above shall 42

apply 43

44

3. Where only one adequate parsonage is available, it shall meet the housing 45

requirement for both pastors. The charge that does not have an adequate 46

(25)

parsonage shall make a contribution to the other charge for utilities and 47

upkeep of the parsonage. The amount will be negotiated between the District 48

Superintendent and the two charges. 49

50

4. Where there are two (2) adequate parsonages available, the choice of 51

parsonage(s) to be used shall be made by the pastors in consultation 52

with the District Superintendent. If the choice is to occupy one 53

parsonage, any savings and/or income accruing to the charge without a 54

pastor in residence should be used in compliance with paragraph D.3. 55

above. 56

57

E. When a pastor is appointed to more than one church that do not operate as 58

a charge, the church whose parsonage is not lived in or who doesn’t have a 59

parsonage, should provide the church with the parsonage the pastor is 60

residing in a negotiated sum to offset utilities and housing expenses. That 61

amount shall be negotiated by the District Superintendent and the churches. 62

63

F. Any exceptions to these policies must be approved by the affected charge, 64

the pastor involved, the district superintendent, the bishop and the 65

Conference Commission on Equitable Compensation. 66

(26)

RESOLUTION #18 1

STANDARDS FOR THE PARSONAGES 2

I. The purpose of the Parsonage Standards is threefold: 3

4

To help the congregations provide suitable housing within reasonable limits 5

for the pastor’s family. 6

7

To help the pastor’s family and the congregations in taking proper care of the 8

parsonage. 9

10

To help avoid misunderstanding between the congregation and the pastor, 11

(and successive pastors) where pastors move from one parsonage to 12

another. 13

14

II. Minimum Standards for Parsonages: 15

16

A. Floor Plan: The number of rooms in a church parsonage shall include: 17

living room, dining room, kitchen, three or four bedrooms, 1 ½ baths, 18

study (if not in church building), laundry room. If a bedroom is not being 19

used, it may be used as a study. If the parsonage does not meet the 20

room standards, it should be upgraded. It is recommended the 21

parsonage be accessible to those with physical disabilities. 22

23

B. Utilities: Electric, water, gas/oil service and trash removal should be 24

provided. We recommend a central heating system in combination with 25

storm windows and doors; hot water heater and grounded electrical 26

outlets in each room. Air conditioning should be provided for the entire 27

parsonage. Internet service should be provided if it is available in the 28

area. If internet service is not available in the area, provisions for a Hot 29

Spot should be made and considered a monthly utility. Basic cable and/or 30

a television service such as DishTV, Hulu, YouTubeTV, etc. should be 31

provided as a monthly utility. 32

33 34

C. Pastor’s Study: The office is preferably in the church building, but if 35

located in the parsonage it should be on the first floor. The study should 36

be equipped with adequate bookshelves, desk, files, storage closet for 37

supplies, copier, computer and telephone. The pastor’s study should 38

have an outside entrance, when at the parsonage, and be accessible to 39

those with physical disabilities. 40

41

D. Furnishings and equipment to be provided by the church: 42

Particular attention should be given to quality, durability of all furnishings 43

and equipment. 44

(27)

45

1. Window treatments (window blinds, curtains and/or drapes); rugs 46

or wall-to-wall carpet; adequate lighting. 47

48

2. Kitchen: refrigerator with freezer (at least 20 cu.ft.), range and 49

oven, exhaust fan, microwave, dishwasher, adequate cabinet and 50

counter space. It is recommended that vinyl flooring be used. 51

52

3. Laundry Room: A standard size automatic washer and dryer with 53

adequate venting, plumbing, and wiring. 54

55

4. Safety Equipment: Fire extinguishers for the kitchen and the 56

furnace area. These should be the ABC type or other 57

Underwriters approved type. Smoke alarm systems should be 58

installed on each floor. CO Alarms should be installed near the 59

furnace area and sleeping areas. It is strongly recommended that 60

security alarm systems be installed. 61

62 63

III. Care of Property by the Church: 64

65

A. Insurance: The church shall provide fire and liability insurance on the 66

replacement value of the parsonage property. Church insurance does not 67

cover parsonage family personal property, therefore, it is highly 68

recommended the parsonage family purchase insurance. 69

70

B. Inspections 71

72

1. The parsonage shall be well maintained with periodic checks, at 73

least annually, by the chairperson of Trustees and the 74

chairperson of Pastor-Parish Relations Committee and the 75

Pastor. Paint, wallpaper, wiring, plumbing, fire extinguishers, 76

smoke alarms, CO alarms should all be inspected. The 77

chairperson of the Pastor-Parish Relations Committee, the 78

chairperson of the Board of Trustees and the parsonage family 79

shall report their finding annually to the Charge Conference. 80

These inspections should take place at a mutually agreed upon 81

time with the parsonage family. 82

83

2. A plan to correct any findings requiring repairs or renovations shall 84

be prepared by the Board of Trustees and shared with the 85

parsonage family. The plan should include the estimated 86

completion date for all repairs or renovations. 87

88

3. Any damage, in excess of normal wear and tear, caused by the 89

(28)

damages caused by pets. The parsonage family may either repair 91

or reimburse the church for repairs with an estimated completion 92

date or reimbursement date provided to the Board of Trustees. 93

94

C. It should be clearly determined, in the case of all gifts of furnishings 95

and/or equipment, whether the gift is intended for the parsonage or the 96 parsonage family. 97 98 D. Records 99 100

1. An inventory of the church provided parsonage furnishings should 101

be maintained by the Trustees. In addition, an up-to-date file, 102

containing all guarantees, repair parts lists, and the instructions 103

for the use of equipment, should be provided to the parsonage 104

family. The file should also indicate when and from whom 105

purchased and whom to call for service. 106

107

2. There shall be a record of the dates when the various rooms were 108

renovated, painted, etc. 109

110

E. Such things as cutting grass, trimming shrubs, shoveling snow, and the 111

like are to be worked out between the parsonage family and the Pastor-112

Parish Relations Committee. 113

114

IV. Care of Property by the Parsonage Family 115

116

A. Parsonage family’s personal property is not included in the Conference 117

Property and Liability Insurance Program. Personal property and liability 118

(both provided through tenant’s/renter’s insurance) is the responsibility of 119

the parsonage family. 120

121

B. The parsonage family shall maintain an inventory of personal property. It 122

is recommended that a video inventory be taken. 123

124

C. The parsonage family is responsible for any damage in excess of normal 125

wear and tear to church property by members of the family and/or family 126

pets which is incurred during their occupancy. 127

128

D. Repair and maintenance needs should be addressed promptly. The 129

parsonage family shall care for those minor needs which it has the ability 130

to care for, and shall advise the Board of Trustees promptly when 131

completed. The parsonage family shall report those needs which cannot 132

be cared for by the parsonage family to the Board of Trustees. 133

134

E. The parsonage family shall make the parsonage available for periodic 135

inspections, at least annually. 136

(29)

137

V. Problem Resolution: 138

The District Superintendent shall be consulted by the pastor or the church 139

when difficulties or misunderstandings arise in the care and maintenance of 140

parsonages and furnishings which cannot be satisfactorily resolved on the 141

local church level. If the problem remains unresolved, any of the parties may 142

request the involvement of the District Board on Church Location and 143

Building, which shall adjudicate the problem. Regular inspection by the 144

District Superintendent and/or the District Board will be conducted until a 145

parsonage meets basic standards or is otherwise exempted. The building or 146

purchasing or selling of a parsonage should be done in accordance with the 147

most current United Methodist Book of Discipline. 148

149 150

VI. Moving Standards: 151

A. At moving time, the church should make sure the facilities are in good 152

repair, the light switches working, the faucets not leaking, etc. 153

154

B. The parsonage family who causes damage, beyond fair wear and tear, to 155

walls and church property shall be charged the cost of the repairs. 156

157

C. At moving time, the parsonage family should leave the parsonage in 158

clean, orderly condition. Trash and unwanted items should be hauled 159

away. The parsonage family should leave for his/her successor: 160

1. Tagged keys for all locks. 161

2. Notes on whom to call in case of emergency. 162

3. Notes on whom to call for service and repairs. 163

4. Notes on where to find such things as screens, lawn mowers, etc. 164

5. The existing parsonage telephone number. (If existing phone 165

number cannot be used, notify the Pastor-Parish Relations 166

Committee, District Office and Conference Resource Center 167

immediately of the change). 168

169

VII. Make life more pleasant for the Parsonage Family and the Congregation 170

A. The parsonage is the home of the pastor and the pastor’s family during 171

their occupancy; their rights and privacy should always be observed by 172

members of the congregation. However, the parsonage family should 173

take care of all parsonage property. 174

175

B. Since all utilities are paid by the church, such items as storm windows, 176

insulation, and improved heating systems should be given every 177

consideration. Utilities are interpreted to mean heat, electricity, gas, oil, 178

sewage, water, telephone, internet and basic cable/tv service if available. 179

(NOTE: The parsonage family is responsible for personal toll calls made 180

by the parsonage family.) 181

(30)

C. It is recommended that maintenance free material be used in existing and 183

new parsonages, such as: ceramic tile, paneling, durable floor coverings, 184

aluminum siding, vinyl or aluminum windows, formica, brick, split shingles, 185

and aluminum gutters. 186

187

D. Parsonage yards should be landscaped for easy maintenance. 188

189

The parsonage is a witness of the church, and it is a symbol of the stewardship of the 190

congregation; the parsonage should, therefore, receive the same kind of care as the 191

church building. An open house is suggested as a means of the church and the 192

parsonage family sharing this witness. 193

RESOLUTION #22

1

Grace UMC, Salisbury Disaffiliation from The United Methodist Church

2 3

Whereas after much time spent seeking the will of God through prayer, discernment and

4

consultation among our laity and our pastors, we the members of Grace United Methodist

5

Church, hereby have resolved to disaffiliate from The United Methodist Church for

6

reasons of conscience.

7 8

Whereas the United Methodist Church has noticeably drifted more and more to a secular

9

and worldly view regarding the practice of homosexuality, ordination of self-avowed

10

practicing homosexuals, and conducting marriages of same sex persons, thus denying

11

the clear teaching of Scripture, and promoting the above in opposition to the tenets of the

12

2016 Book of Discipline, as ratified as recently as the 2019 General Conference, we

13

therefore see no other alternative but to sever our relationship with such entity.

14 15

Whereas Bishop Peggy Johnson, our Pen-Del episcopal leader, is authorized to be

16

shepherd of the flock and to guard the faith, order, liturgy, doctrine, and discipline of the

17

Church by upholding the vows she took as bishop. It is our opinion she is denying those

18

vows in calling the churches of the Pen-Del Annual Conference to recognize the practice

19

of homosexuality as normal human behavior to the end that self-avowed homosexuals

20

will be ordained to serve in ministry, and that traditional marriage between one man and

21

one woman should also include the marriage of same-sex persons, and in so doing our

22

bishop refuses to obey the clear direction of the Book of Discipline to call for and hold a

23

church trial when a church or a pastor in clear defiance of the Book of Discipline conducts

24

such a marriage. We, therefore, believe that rather than kick the can down the road

25

another year, it is time for us to separate from the United Methodist Church.

26 27

Be it resolved that in so doing, we the people of Grace will continue to preach the Gospel

28

to the lost, to be in ministry to all persons - offering forgiveness of sins and salvation

29

through Jesus Christ, and in so doing, extending the right hand of fellowship to all who

30

would join us on our journey heavenward!
