Vail Vision January 7, 2007

Vail Vision January 7, 2007

 

It's a New Year and a New Congregation...

It's official! Today, Christ Lutheran Vail will install their first Board of Ministry Directors. Dick Phillips, Larry Unger and Paul Schaefer were the Fountain of Life elders who were appointed to oversee the formation of Christ Lutheran Vail. They have worked tirelessly to oversee the legal formation of Christ Lutheran Vail. With the passage of the constitution and the election of the Board of Ministry Directors, Christ Lutheran Vail can now operate as a separate legal entity.

The Board of Ministry Directors are ultimately responsible for the operation of Christ Lutheran Vail. Some (not all) of the duties of the Board of Ministry Directors are:

  • Be responsible for establishing policies necessary to direct the overall program of the congregation;
  • Ensure the preparation of the mission, vision, budget, and plans to be adopted by the Voters Assembly and their implementation;
  • Ensure that the financial integrity of the congregation is maintained;
  • Authorize the Senior Administrative Pastor to administer the day-to-day operations of the congregation in
    accordance with its own policies and directives and those established by the congregation through its Voters Assembly;
  • Be responsible for the receiving of and acting upon, if necessary, feed-back and/or complaints from members of the congregation regarding aspects of its operations;
  • Establish appropriate consultative and action committees and approve the appointment of members.
    This structure allows the flexibility of the staff to quickly respond to the needs of Christ Lutheran Vail, yet be responsible to the congregation.

    You may not notice a change as we begin this new structure. Preaching will still be provided by Fountain of Life. The Board of Ministry Directors will continue to oversee the operations of the church. The only real change is that the management and accountability of offerings will be performed by Christ Lutheran Vail.

    Christ Lutheran Vail will still be closely tied to Fountain of Life. They are a superb congregation and we will partner with them in many areas. We are grateful for all that Fountain of Life has done in starting this congregation.

    Blessings,

    David Hook
