Committees at Prescott United Methodist Church

In order to properly administer a church, members serve on committees and are usually nominated to those committees by a Nomination Committee.  Pastors are the church spiritual leaders and attend meetings but are not officially members of those committees.

Every United Methodist Church must have specific committees, but there are others that are optional but usually present in the committee structure.  

Links shown for each committee will direct you to more details about each.

The required committees are shown below.  SPRC, Finance, and Trustee Chairs are members of Church Council:

  • Nominations and Leadership -- Chaired by the lead pastor, this committee identifies, develops, deploys, evaluated, and monitors members to chair and lead the congregational ministries. Click here for official details of their roles.
  • Church Council -- Chaired by an individual selected at each annual charge conference, this committee is comprised of committee chairs and leaders and is the administrative agency that envisions, plans, implements and annually evaluates the congregational ministry.  Click here for official details of their roles.
