The true leadership of this church is found in the membership of our community. The Diaconate is an elected group of deacons responsible for leading the spiritual and administrative matters of the church but accountable to the whole membership of the church. The Diaconate works together with the Senior Pastor to guide, discern and oversee the goals and vision of the church. However, all major matters and final actions are decided by the full church membership.
The officers of the Diaconate are elected as the Moderator, Vice Moderator, Church Clerk, Treasurer along with deacons who assist in leading a variety of committees to help the work of the church. The church staff are ex-officio members without vote in the Diaconate sessions. The Diaconate approves and reccomends a proposed fiscal budget to be presented to the church membership at an Annual Business Meeting.
We believe that leadership at JBC is about giving voice, ownership and leadership to everyone in our community as best we can. JBC is here to love God, love neighbor and live in the way of Jesus Christ in all that we do.
