Leadership Board

What is Leadership Board?

The Leadership Board at MBIC serves to support and counsel the Lead Pastor and to encourage, trust, protect, and pray for all ministry staff. To that end, Board members are encouraged to take time to study, research, and prayerfully listen to where God is leading MBIC as a body of believers and to take initiative with the Lead Pastor in determining and casting vision for our church. Additionally, Leadership Board speaks into policies that impact congregational life, oversees the church’s finances with our Treasurer, and approves budgets for recommendation to the congregation via our annual congregational council.

Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. Acts 20:28

Affirmation Process for Board:

Our “Affirmation” process selects candidates for approval at our annual Congregational Council Meeting.

  1. In September, the congregation may nominate candidates to serve on the Board.
  2. Next, eligible candidates will receive a questionnaire in early fall.
  3. Top candidates are selected by the Board for an interview
  4. The Board votes to select the appropriate number of candidates to fill open seats in the upcoming year.

The congregation is invited to affirm or not affirm each candidate through our voting process at Congregational Council.
