The Leadership Development Committee’s mission is to support, train, and guide members to participate in leadership in the congregation to the mutual benefit of the individual and the congregation.
Congregational leadership takes many forms. Some leaders are in an elected position and some are serving as ushers, making coffee, running the tech team, or singing in the choir.
The Leadership Development Committee supports the mission of the congregation by identifying qualified candidates willing to serve on an elected committee.
The elected committees are as follows:
- Board of Trustees
- Leadership Development Committee
- Special Funds Committee
- Ministerial Search Committee (as needed)
The Leadership Development Committee will also advise on non-elected committee positions as requested by the Board of Trustees.
The Leadership Development Committee provides education to the congregation regarding the role of committees within congregational policy governance.
We understand that leadership is more about the person than the job they are doing. The Leadership Development Committee provides skill building training and/or opportunities to develop a sustainable source of lay leadership within the congregation. This will provide multiple pathways to lay leadership opportunities for members of the congregation.
The Leadership Development Committee is comprised of seven members. Each member serves a two year term and is eligible for two consecutive terms.
