The Council of Hope serves to make daily decisions on the business and life of the congregation and to uphold the policies and procedures set by the congregational bylaws.  It is currently an 11 member council, including the Pastor.  Excepting the Pastor, the members of council are all volunteer and voted into office during the annual congregational meeting. One must be a voting member in good standing to serve on council. 

The executive committee of the council is comprised of the Pastor, President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.  Each meet monthly, however, all council members are committed to serve our community and congregation daily.  If you have interest in supporting the particular area of ministry they lead, they would love to hear from you.

ara Mills, long-time member and worship teammate was elected January of 2020. With a thriving worship team, this is probably one the heartiest teams on campus. From planning worship using all our senses to teaching why we do what we do in worship, this team is essential for a seamless worship experience. If you enjoy worship, consider either serving on the team or being the council co-ordinator.
