The role of the Church Council is to ensure coordination, integration, and strategic planning so that a plurality of leadership exists among all aspects of the Church. It is to ensure synergy and cooperation among all aspects of the Church, and to address general issues not otherwise addressed; to receive and assign such issues to appropriate entities for consideration and resolution. The Council may encourage the resolution of any issue, including the possible calling of Special Business Meetings.
Council members will be thirteen (13) men and women, including six (6) at-large members, the Operations Director, two (2) Deacons, two (2) Pastors, and two (2) Elders. The at-large members will be elected by the Church membership at the annual meeting as vacancies are available.
Qualifications for Council membership are based upon the character qualities similar to those found in 1 Timothy 3:8-13 and Colossians 3:5-25, with the exception of gender references, and with consideration given to specific expertise in specialized areas. The Lead Pastor and the Operations Director will serve continuously on the Council while other Council members will serve one three-year, staggered terms.
