PARISH COUNCIL

An integral part of the leadership of Christ Church is our Parish Council (PC). This is a group of twelve adult members of the church who have demonstrated leadership on various levels and have been elected by the church body. The Senior Pastor (who only votes if there is a tie) also sits on the Parish Council.

Generally, four new PC members are elected at our Annual Meeting (every January) to serve a three-year term. The PC is responsible, along with the Senior Pastor, for the strategic vision of Christ Church and has general authority to oversee the church’s business affairs.
