Administrative Board

    Home » About » Leadership » Administrative Board The purpose of the Administrative Board is to create a strategic plan for a local congregation. Therefore, its primary work is one of leadership rather than management. Leadership is the visionary, "big picture" work that assesses critically where the congregation is at the present moment, where God is calling it to be in the future, and what resources will be required to move from the current reality into the desired reality.

    Main tasks of the committee:
    • Serves as the primary administrative body of the charge conference and oversees the management and programming of the local church.
    • Leads the visioning and strategic planning process within the church.
    • Fills vacancies in lay leadership positions that occur between meetings of the charge conference.
    • Approves the church budget and ensures that the financial needs of the church are met.
