The nominating committee has been hard at work on the creation of a new leadership concept to better support our Church Treasurer. Long story short, we are expecting too much out one volunteer. Thus, we’re having a hard time finding volunteers to serve.

We are striving to create an environment where balance is valued. We want church to be a place where people are spiritually nurtured and their God-given gifts are used to do great things in the world. Burnout makes it nearly impossible for us to live into the fullness that Christ desires for each of us.

Whereas, anyone is welcome to listen to the podcast, the intended purpose of the 25 minute interview with Woody Jenkins, Co-Chair of the Nominating Committee, is information sharing. We want our congregants to have access to helpful information. Informed dialogue helps us to make informed decisions together!

Here are three supportive documents to help you dive deeper, if so desired.

Next Steps:

  1. Deacons will make a decision as to whether or not they approve the creation of the Team.
  2. Pending Deacon approval, the Nominating Committee will officially present names of members that have been nominated to serve.
  3. The congregation receives the names and spends the next two weeks praying, entering into informed dialogue, and asking questions.
  4. Congregation votes two weeks after they first received the names.
  5. Pending approval of the congregation, the four individuals would begin their good work together.

One thought on “Preparing for an upcoming vote: A newly formed Finance Team

  1. Any persons involved with money for the church should be bonded and voted on by the church. Just want to make sure this is a COMMITTEE and not a TEAM as stated above. All teams in the church come under the guidance of the Deacons. Since the Deacons don’t have anything to do with handling the money within the church, the FINANCE COMMITTEE should come under the guidance of the Administrative Board.
