The members of the Board of Stewards are the chief officers of the local church. They promote the overall program of the church and encourage the membership to support it. The Stewards receive all funds collected for the church and provide for the salary and comforts of the pastor. They address the needs of those suffering emergencies by providing food, clothing and other assistance. The Stewards also assist in providing the elements for the “Lord’s Supper,” and seek to increase the membership through outreach, church activities, and evangelistic programs.
Stewards are appointed, annually, by the pastor and thereby become the pastor’s cabinet. In order to spread the responsibility of the Stewards to all on the Steward Board, leaders for each ministry is established. They are: Church Growth & Development, Christian Education, Outreach Ministry, Class Leaders, Membership & Evangelism, Stewardship & Finance, Music, Youth Ministry, Care and Visitation, and Program and Planning.
