Congregational Resourcing Team Minutes 9/6/14


Minutes of Sept 6 meeting in person at the Newton COB

In attendance: Cathy Patrick, Judy Wrightsman, Joanna Smith, Elsie Holderread (visiting as part of the review team), Barbra Davis, Wylene Lengel, Beverly Minnich, Gloria Price

The team reviewed the Questions submitted by the review team. In summary, there is still confusion about the terminology of the new structure, i.e. Transformation Vision Team and Vision Fulfilment Teams. We were reminded that we used to be the witness/nurture team. The gifts discernment team could work for us better if they had a list of the gifts needed in our team. There still seems to be more communication needed.

We reviewed the various responsibilities of our team and identified a lead for each area.
