New UUMC Leadership Structure Approved 

On February 10, the current Leadership Council and Administrative Team unanimously approved a new leadership structure for UUMC.  Our District Superintendent of the Missouri United Methodist Church will now review the structure and is expected to approve it.  Therefore, effective July 1, 2017, the start of the next calendar year, there will be one team for visioning and administrative functions at our church.  This Leadership Team will include thirteen UUMC members, not counting the Pastor:

  • Lay Leader & Leadership Chairperson
  • Lay Leader to Annual Conference (participates in UUMC Ministry Team meetings)
  • Staff-Parish Relations Lead
  • Staff-Parish Relations Sub-team Member
  • Trustee Lead
  • Trustee Sub-team Member
  • Finance Lead
  • Treasurer
  • Recording Secretary or Communications and Office Manager
  • Ministry Team Chairperson
  • Ministry Team Member At-Large
  • Ministry Team Member At-Large
  • Membership Secretary

Some of the current Leadership Council and Administrative Team members will continue on the new Leadership Team if they are in the middle of their three-year term.  The UUMC Nominations and Leadership Development Team will be prayerfully identifying and contacting members to fill any vacancies on the Leadership Team and the larger sub-teams for the Staff-Parish, Finance, Trustees, and Technology areas.

If you have any questions about this change, please contact Rev. Diane (314-309-0442) or Dan Barrett (314-726-2509).
