The Leadership Board has a big responsibility to lead the church in its mission of making disciples. This is likely to stir up emotions and passion of the various leaders around the table when decisions are made - and rightly so! How will you feel if the Leadership Board makes a decision that you do not personally agree with? (follow up question) Will you be able to support the decision both publicly and privately? How will you do that? *
To sit in the Leadership Board Chair is a very different person than sitting in the pew. This means that some of the conversations and comments that might be appropriate as a congregant might not be appropriate for a board member to say. For example, a board member would not say anything negative about the pastor or other staff members regardless of how the board member felt personally. The board member is an advocate, encourager, supporter, and carrier of the mission and vision of the church. How would you handle a situation when one of your friends or family members who also attend church wanted you to share information, provide your opinion, or allow him/her to talk negatively about clergy or staff? *
The board meets quarterly for about 3 hours and has an expectation that leaders will come to the meeting having reviewed information and reports prior to the meetings. From time-to-time, you may be placed on a work team for short-term projects to assist the board in their work. Are you willing and prepared to make this type of commitment for a three-year period? *
If your were to serve on the Leadership Board, what would be your hope for your leadership ministry while serving? What would you like to accomplish or see happen? *

What questions do you have for us? *
