Our Church Board consists of the Chair, the Minister, the church Treasurer and the Secretary, as well as members representing each of the following four teams: Ministry and Personnel (M&P), Trustees, STAMP (Space, Time, Assets, Money, Property), and STEAM (Spiritual matters Team).
Their work and their decisions are guided by the EUC Mission, Vision and Values. Holy manners govern their meetings and other interactions.
The M&P and Trustee teams are necessary as per United Church of Canada policy and operate under guidelines set out in The Manual, handbooks and guides of the National United Church of Canada.
