What makes us unique?

  • We are church with a congregational form of government. We are accountable to the members who elect us.
  • As congregants we are in covenant and community with each other. We have more, stronger, and closer social networks than most other nonprofit organizations.
  • We have specific organizational mandates based upon the bylaws of our denomination, the UFMCC. For example, The Senior Pastor has sole authority for the content and order of all worship services.
  • The Senior Pastor (CEO) is hired by the congregation through election and is vested with specific duties and authority – such as teacher, preacher, and spiritual leader – for which he/she is accountable directly to the congregation. This differs from most secular non-profit organizations where the Board of Directors hires the Chief Executive Officer who is accountable solely to the Board.
  • We have distinctive characteristics based on the large size of our congregation and the size to which our vision aspires.

Roles and Responsibilities

The roles and responsibilities of a Board of Directors in a Metropolitan Community Church are both similar and different in contrast to other business and nonprofit organizations as well as congregations affiliated with other denominations. The key similarities are mostly legal; churches are usually incorporated under provincial or state nonprofit corporation laws. Also, churches, like other charities, hold tax exempt status under national tax laws. The key differences in churches are shaped strongly by organizational culture. Congregational size, history, denominational affiliation, and form of church government often shape the differences.
