Church Board

Our Church Board functions as a plurality of leaders who serve our congregation by “shepherding the flock” in areas of spiritual oversight and care, as well as directing our ministries and finances. Our Board consists of our 2 Pastors, 4-6 Deacons, and 4-6 Trustees. Our Deacons primarily look after “people”, while our Trustees primarily look after “property”. Each year, during our Annual Church Business Meeting, the church members vote to elect Deacons and Trustees to 3 year terms as positions are open. After this meeting, the Board meets to elect a Deacon Chairman and Trustee Chairman, with one of these chairmen then being elected to represent the Board as Board Chairman. The Board Chairman facilitates Board Meetings, and speaks on behalf of the Board as needed. We praise God for the men He has raised up to be servant-leaders at Bethany!
