How is BPMC is organized?

Our church’s administrative oversight is primarily handled by a network of teams. Below is a list of these teams and their functions. We have other ministry teams as well, however, these are the main ones. They are elected at our yearly Church Conference, at which all Church Members can vote.

Administrative Leadership Team

This is the governing body of our church. The Leadership Team's  job is to envision, plan, implement, and annually evaluate the ministry of the congregation. This team represents the concerns of the Trustees, Staff Parish Relations, Finance, and Nominations and meet on the second Tuesday of the month at 6pm in the UMW Room.

Other BPMC Ministry Teams

Safe Sanctuary

This team is responsible for the updating and implementing our church’s Safe Sanctuary policy, which aims to make church a safe place for all children, youth, and vulnerable adults, as well as the volunteers who work with them. 

Missions Committee

This team helps keep BPMC on the front lines of missions in our community, around the nation and into the world through mission funding and building projects. 

Memorial Committee

Often when someone passes away, friends and family give a gift in their memory to the church. This team oversees the use of these funds for the purchase of items that support and enhance the ministry of this church.
