Abstract
This thesis project is focused on providing assistance to smaller churches in the reformed Church in America in the process of calling a part time pastor. The goal is to produce a guidebook for leaders of these small churches addressing the unique challenges of ministry in a small church with a part time pastor. To this end, the role of part time ministers is explored, both historical and contemporary. This work include personal interviews along with a review of related literature. Theological issues regarding the call to ministry of part time pastors, the mission of the church, and small church leadership are explored.
