WHAT IS THE PT&S COMMITTEE’S PROCESS OF EVALUATING A PETITION FOR REINSTATEMENT?
The PT&S committee consists of five to seven members plus ex-officio members, who are center directors and assigned The Church Network national staff. These seven appointed members are given a copy of the reinstatement candidate’s essay to read. After individual evaluation and reflection the committee members cast a vote and suggest actions to be taken to reinstate the member. If the committee votes unanimously to reinstate, the chair of the committee, CEO and Education Director will outline the steps and communicate with the designee. If the vote is not unanimous, but a majority of the committee votes yes, the committee will hold a conference call to discuss the candidate’s request. After the conference discussion is completed another vote is taken. If the designee receives a 2/3 vote to reinstate, the chair of the committee, CEO and Education Director will outline the steps and communicate with the designee.
