2022 Leadership Board

The Leadership Board is the governing body of Manchester UMC. The Leadership Board, as a whole, fulfills the functions of Church Council, Trustees, Finance, and Pastor-Parish Relations Committee as defined in the United Methodist Book of Discipline.

For 2022 Manchester UMC’s Leadership Board consists of 15 voting members. Four clergy also serve on the Leadership Board as ex-officio members with voice but no vote. Below are the 2022 members of the Leadership Board.
