A Terms of Call is set up for pastoral staff. This call is a relationship between a minister/pastor and a congregation based on a call of the Holy Spirit.

A Terms of Call to a Pastorate document sets out practical details of the call to a pastorate between a pastor and a church. As this is not an employment relationship, the rights and obligations of an employment relationship do not apply.
