 2021 Leadership Teams & Ministry Council Members

Ministry Council

“The Book of Discipline” defines the Ministry Council as the executive agency of the charge conference; a group of leaders that guides and furthers the ministry of the congregation. The work of the council is to envision, plan, implement, and annually evaluate our ministry in pursuit of our mission: “making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” The council is the administrative leader of the cycle of discipleship by connecting vision and ministry and the role of the council is to integrate and coordinate all of the Christ-centered ministries/missions and administrative controls of the church.

When do they meet?
Usually on the fourth Monday each month at 6:30pm, with occasional called meetings.
