Leadership Ministry Teams at UCUMC 2017

Governing Board
We have gone to a Simplified Leadership Structure designed to streamline the business of the church. In this model the Board governs, the pastor leads, the staff (paid and unpaid) manage and the congregation does the “hands on” ministry. In the meetings Finance, Trustees and Staff Parish Relations conduct their business with everyone on the board as part of their business and ministry team. The board uses the Mission and Vision Statements for the ongoing alignment of new and existing programs and ministries of the church. Further, they are responsible for church goals and accountability.

Ministry Teams

Some ministry teams are ongoing support, like worship, and caring ministries.  Some ministries are more formal in nature. Some ministries form over a specific need or situation.  Some ministries come from the grass roots and some ministries are staff driven. Universal City United Methodist Church relies on its members to be active in ministry.  There is a place for all to serve as we Discover, Share and Inspire as a congregation.
