Sample of Specific Responsibilities of Council Members


The council is comprised of the elected and ordained officers of the church who as elders and deacons are responsible for the overall administration of the ministry of the church. Its membership will be twelve in number. The council will be made up of five elders and five deacons who, based on their gifts and abilities, are nominated specifically for terms on the council. The Senior Pastor and the Pastor of Outreach & Pastoral Care will be members of the council. The President of Council will serve as moderator of the council.

Interesting. Is there a reason in this sample that the President and Vice-President of Council must be an elder? (Interestingly, in my congregation, the President of Council may be an elder or a deacon, but the Clerk of Council must be an elder.)
