Ministry Team Leader --  


  • Finance -- Phil Vankirk

The Finance ministry exists to recomment an annual budget for the General Board consideration, using compiled departmental financial proposals.  They evaluate areas of emphasis and develop an overall budget with consideration of past and anticipated offering levels.  Special emphasis is placed on accurately evaluating previous annual budgets through staff reports.  The propsed budget is presented by the Church Treasurer to the General Board in January for their reviews, further direction, or adoption.

  • Offering -- Bill LIsle

The Offering ministry exists to accurately handle, process and deposit the tithes and offerings with fiduciary responsibility.  This ministry leader also develops a quarterly schedule listing of designated "offering counters" for each Sunday and ensure Special Offerings throughout the year are made as simple as possible for the congregation to contribute.

  • Benevolence -- Paul Helms

The Benevolence ministry exists to oversee, suggest policy changes, and authorize the dispersing of funds to members that are in need, while holding the recipients to financial accountability through teaching or counseling when needed.
