Board of Directors, Ministries, and Dream Teams

MCC Sacred Journey Board of Directors (BOD)

Administration including Board of Directors (BOD) & Sub-committees

As an affiliated MCC member congregation, MCC Sacred Journey (MCCSJ) operates its administrative efforts, fiscal management, and governance under denominational and local church by-laws (link to By-Laws PDF under the About Us Our Church section) through an elected Board of Directors (BOD).

Members of the BOD are elected to serve 3-year staggered terms, and meet monthly or more to manage their entrusted responsibilities. During their 1st meeting, the Board prayerfully decides by vote who will serve as officers of the church and what portfolios each Board member will seek to fulfill. Officers of the church include Moderator (role held by the pastor), Vice Moderator, Clerk, and Treasurer. In addition to these officers, there is also a Member @ Large that serves on a 5-member Board of Directors. Various Sub-committees of the BOD have been created according to our governance and structure as needed including: Building & Facilities, Finance & Fundraising, Stewardship, and Strategic Planning Sub-committees.


The goal of our Board of Directors is to use principles of healthy church and Church Size Theory to fulfill their elected and legal role of providing a Duty of Care and Duty of Loyalty.
