The very mission of First Protestant Church is evident in our organizational chart, which places the congregation at the very top of our institutional structure. In accordance with the Protestant tradition, we believe in open transparency of church matters.
- First Protestant Church Staff
- First Protestant Church Council
- Current Board and Council Members
The Church Council’s role is to listen reflectively and assure that our ministers and programs remain true to our mission statement, values, and vision for the future. The policy-making body of FPC, the Council is comprised of duly elected representatives of the church membership and is charged by the Constitution and By-Laws to direct the planning, administrative, and legal affairs of the church, in conjunction with the various Boards. The Council is made up of seven at-large members, four officers, and the Senior Minister. The four officers, along with the Senior Minister, comprise the Executive Committee, which meets as needed to review finances, the budget, church policies, and human resource matters. FPC functions as a “staff directed, council protected” model of governance. The Senior Minister provides leadership in developing, communicating, and implementing FPC’s vision.
