Strong, effective lay leadership is a core value at Faith Church. Organized around our mission to take Christ into the world, specialized teams optimize ministry within the church and beyond. Leadership teams function in concert with others to:
- Collaborate with each other for on-going work in the parish
- Communicate new ideas and meet challenges
- Cooperate with each other as we respond to the call God

Ministry Team Leaders
This team comprise the leaders of every ministry area (Altar Guild, Music, Landscape, etc.) and meet monthly to communicate, collaborate, and cooperate. Team Leaders take information and ideas to their respective teams, affording conduits of information and ideas to and from the parish.
This team plans the outreach activity of the parish, recommends mission funding opportunities to the vestry, and organizes revenue generation for outreach. Many members of Faith Church do mission and ministry work both locally and around the world. The Mission Team supports their work through prayer and resource management.
Small Group Steering Committee
An integral part of our community, the steering committee helps shape the focus and content of small group ministries, particularly groups that meet with a short term objective. They recruit, train, and support small group leaders who meet on the church campus and in the community.
