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.
Manchester UMC’s Leadership Board consists of 15 voting lay members. They are nominated by the nominations committee and typically serve rotating 3-year terms. Four clergy also serve on the Leadership Board as ex-officio members with voice but no vote.
Churches, like many groups, adopt policies to help define their structure as well as the rules, practices, and processes used to direct and manage the organization. This page contains resources related to the purpose and work of the Leadership Board.
