Our church is about to embark on an exciting new Shared Ministry governance model, which has been under discernment for several years now. Why the change?
Multiple reasons: better collaboration, more reliance on a knowledgeable and experienced staff, better communication, more time for congregants to focus on fellowship, spiritual journey and important issues.
Teams have been formed around six programmatic areas. Teams will begin with an orientation in early September, and team meetings will begin this fall. Watch the weekly e-news for updates. Read all about who is on the teams and how they will work here: :
