Part-Time Interim Pastor
We are in the process of searching for a part-time interim pastor.
He would have no authority in the governance of the church but would preach on Sunday mornings and attend staff meetings to stay abreast of the direction of the church.
He work with us would be for a limited time of anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. (We have several other full-time staff who are employees)
Is it permissible to declare this licensed, ordained, but otherwise retired individual an independent contractor and simply issue a 1099?
