An effective committee builds a strong positive relationship between staff and congregation so that the congregation makes disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. This committee will work with the lead pastor and other staff to fulfill legal and ethical responsibilities related to staff.
The church council shall provide for planning and implementing a program of nurture, outreach, witness, and resources in the local church. It shall also provide for the administration of its organization and temporal life. It shall envision, plan, implement, and annually evaluate the mission and ministry of the church. The church council shall be amenable to and function as the administrative agency of the charge conference
Effective trustees will function as Christian stewards of property God has entrusted to the congregation. This includes supervising and maintaining both the physical property of the congregation and gifts made to the congregation so that the ministries of the congregation can be effective and all legal requirements related to the property are satisfied.
My name is Gil Lee. My wife Hannah, our children, Grace and Daniel, and I moved here to Contoocook from Singapore and I began serving this congregation on July 1, 2018.
This is not my first move to a new time zone. I have served as a missionary trainer in Singapore, pastored at churches in Severn, MD, Wilmore, KY and in Singapore, and been a missiology professor in Korea, Indonesia, Singapore, and Sri Lanka. I have thought of myself as a mobile church, moving around the world sharing God's dream from 1Timothy2:4 “For all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth”.
