How We Are Organized

Ministry Structure
Chapel Hill began living into the new Ministry Structure        following the presentation at Church Conference on June 21, 2017.  When Chapel Hill accepted the five prescriptions of the Vital Church Initiative, a move to a “policy         governance board” model for church ministry was part of the plan.  The new structure includes an eight member (plus the Lead Pastor) board that works with the church vision, mission, and core values to implement and maintain a strategic plan.   This is a change from our former       Leadership Team structure where each core team updated the Leadership Team on their activities.  That work will      continue between Core Team Leaders and the Lead Pastor. 

After forming, the board has held 2 meetings with a few key actions:

· Confirmed our understanding of the role of the board

· Adopted name “Guidance Board” instead of Policy     Governance Board as it better represents the goal

· Reviewed Vision, Mission & Core Values – confirmed without changes

· Reviewed Statements That Guide Us and will use these as a basis to recommend Strategic Goals & potential ways to measure

Next meeting: Monday, October 16
