Voting members of the church elect a Board of Trustees who hold executive power in the church. The board includes a President and Vice-President and five Trustees who serve staggered three year terms. The members may serve no more than two consecutive terms. The board holds regular monthly meetings that are open to all congregational members. It is responsible for the fiscal matters, personnel, the church property, and assuring that what needs to be done is done as well as possible.
