Our Mission

The National Association of Church Personnel Administrators (NACPA) promotes leadership in human resources, finance and administration that models Gospel values, promoting justice in the workplace.

To accomplish our mission we promote comprehensive church personnel systems which integrate Catholic social teaching and sound management principles; strengthen working relationships among Church leaders, ministers and employees; develop church personnel and human resource skills and competence and commit to excellence through Gospel values.
