The Church Board is a single body called by the congregation for governance. The purpose of the board is to conduct the affairs of the congregation so as to achieve the mission and vision of SMC. The Church Board functions on behalf of the congregation to make sure accountability for all components are in place. The Church Board sees their work as ministry and seeks the Spirit's discernment in their worshipful-work model of functioning.
Current Church Board:
Cory Longacre, Chair
Tim Bentch, Lead Pastor
Pastoral Leadership Team
The pastoral leadership team gives leadership to the ministry of the equipping church. The pastoral team works together to keep the vision centered and focused. The team is led by a senior pastor and the other members of the team lead in their respective ministries with an empowered collaborative style.
Equipping Core Team
This ministry team is in place to guide the assimilation process for persons who are new to the faith and/or to SMC and to help every member (minister) discover his/her spiritual gifts and ministry passions and to assist, equip and empower them to do God's mission in the world.
The pastors are called to equip and to train members to serve. This recognizes that all members are called to be ministers. Team based ministry involves a focused and defined ministry for each person. Ministry teams will be formed around the vision and mission of the church. Training will be available for each person in a ministry focus area. Persons will be called to ministry through a ministry discovery process and also at times affirmed by the congregation through the nominating process.
