In some cases, there is no separate evaluation of the senior staff member. This occurs in cases where the senior staff member has complete responsibility for the operational results of the ministry and is the only person reporting to the board. In such situations, the organizational evaluation is also the senior staff member’s evaluation.
But there are generally three cases when a senior staff member must be evaluated separately from the ministry:
(1) if the board takes responsibility for operational results (e.g., if it must approve the programs and large spending decisions)
(2) if there are two staff reporting directly to the board (e.g., a pastor and an administrator)
(3) if the senior staff’s personal work is being evaluated
