  • Christ Presbyterian Church
    Taskforce Organization Model
    Reorganization Taskforce Members:
    Jack Absetz Elizabeth Nelson
    Velma Armijo Nyambi Nyambi
    Denise Beach Pastor Geoff McLean, Moderator
  • The current system is not working
    Ministries are falling through the cracks- no one to lead them
    Many Session members still functioning as Team Leads
    People are hesitant to join a “team”, as the job seems too large and daunting
    Why make a change?
    • There is frustration over the lack of function
    • A desire to expand congregational participation and leadership, in order to further empower members to claim their Christian vocation
  • Create a system that:
    Organization Goals
    • Is both accountable and fluid
    • Allows the vision of God as discerned by the Session and the congregation to be the guiding principle of all CPC ministries
    • Expands the congregational ownership, leadership and participation in the ministries of CPC – Empowering Our Members
    • Focuses on relationship-based ministries
    • Allows active Elders to be the permission-giving, vision-based leaders not the doers
    • Is able to provide for both the ongoing ministries and help develop new ministries (including short term)
  • What will it look like?
    • Based on the “Trinity of Relationships” explored in the Unbinding Your Heart study
    • Elders Team together (3 panels of 3 Elders) to coordinate relationship areas.
    • The current ministry team structure will be divided into smaller “tasks” and reallocate to relationship areas
    • Ideas for new ministries (from congregation members) would be referred to the Elder relationship area panel (and the full Session if necessary) for review as to whether they fit into CPC’s current mission/vision
    • If approved, the Elder panel will identify a task leader to create a taskforce for implementing the program
    • If no leader or volunteers can be found for an approved taskforce, the program is not implemented
  • The Trinity of Relationships
    Relationship with those within the Christian Community
    With God
    Relationship with those Outside the Christian Community
