Glen Mar Leadership Board

The Leadership Board's role is to provide leadership for Glen Mar Church by ensuring the church fulfills the vision, mission, and ministry of the local congregation. This is in support of the vision of The United Methodist Church's mission "to make disciples for the transformation of the world." The Board provides guidance, support, and accountability to ministry leaders and staff for the sake of the mission and vision of the church. Effective January 2017, the Leadership Board replaces the former Leadership Team as well as the Church Council. Read about the Single Board Model here.

One of the primary areas of focus for the Leadership Board is to ensure that Glen Mar is positioned to achieve our 2017 Goals and Objectives.
