Leadership at Glendale
There are three teams which have an oversight function within Glendale Church. Although they are separate teams and oversee different functions within the Church, there is connectivity between them and they are all made up of people with a heart to serve the Church and see God’s Kingdom extended in Newbury and the surrounding area.
There is a team of Trustees, which oversees governance and legal issues; the Leadership Team which is responsible for the overall vision and direction of the Church; and Council, which provides operational oversight of Church activities.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be introducing these teams and the fuctions each team member has responsibility for. This week, we’ll be looking at the Leadership Team.
The Leadership team is made up of those carrying the office of Eldership and other leaders. It is responsible for the overall vision and direction of the Church.
