What is the latest on advisory boards for staff and ministry teams?

This is a great question! Yes, we are definitely hoped  develop this “directory” by now. It has not been forgotten, however, and is captured as an item to be followed up on the "Ministry Evaluation Strategic Focus". We can report however that there has been progress in establishing a few new ministry teams where there have been gaps in service opportunities (i.e. music ministries and stewardship). Just to let you know we have also established a schedule to review one of the six primary strategic focus areas at each Board meeting such that this would result in a semi-annual review of each area. The "Ministry Evaluation" area is scheduled for review on January 26, 2016. We should be able to provide you with more information following that meeting. You are more than welcome to attend that meeting.
