This simple guideline is intended to support the incoming pastor with some Do’s and Don’ts as they begin their new ministry.

A downloadable PDF version and a full readout of the text in the graphic, which helps aid accessibility, particular for those using screen-reading software, are also available on the General Commission on Religion and Race (GCORR)’s page.
