Board Members

Board members are expected to participate in four board meetings a year. The meetings are held at the District Office, 2545 Farmers Dr, Suite 350, Columbus.

Board members can participate in other sub groups or committees of the Communities Ministries, but they are not required to do so.

A term on the board lasts three years. Persons can be invited to serve a second term. There is a six year limit on serving on the board.

Two Standing Committees

1) Local Outreach Support Committee - meets on a quarterly basis, does site visits to all the sites receiving an outreach ministry grant and decides on the amounts to be awarded.

2) Finance and Investment Committee - also meets quarterly, and is in charge of managing our investment portfolio and developing our annual budget.
