Last Wednesday night after our pot-luck supper, Debra Bryant (Chair of Deacons), Ed Smith (Chair of Church Council), Alan Hendricks (Chair of Personnel), Larry Martin (Chair of Finance) and I presented a proposal for a UBC Ministry Residency Program.
Three documents were distributed in the meeting:
1) A “Frequently Asked Questions” document explaining what a Ministry Residency Program is.
2) A description of the specific Ministry Residency Program to be proposed here at UBC.
3) A flow chart describing the process by which this program will be proposed, considered, and decided by the congregation.
Printouts of these documents will be available next Sunday; in the meantime, you can download them using the links above.
I encourage you to read through these documents. If you have additional questions, please email the church office and your email will be forwarded to church leaders and to me.
We’re hoping to put this proposal forward for a vote following further discussion at the Church Conference on August 27 (begins at 6:15 pm).
Thank you for your participation in this process — and thank you for your prayers as we seek to clarify our mission and enhance our ministry.
In Christ, Michael
