March 2019 Update

As part of our commitment to more regular, transparent and timely communication with the Congregation we want to highlight some of our recent activities. We meet bi-monthly and will provide you with the key points arising from our meetings.

Board meeting March 13, 2019 and Congregational Town Hall March 17, 2019

Congregational Care initiative

Our top staff initiative currently is developing and implementing a radically new model for congregational care that is integrated, transparent, accountable, and meets the increasing needs of our congregation.   We are in the midst of a search for a part-time Coordinator of Congregational Care to lead and mentor a team of lay ministers, clergy, and friendly visitors– if you know someone that may be qualified for this position, direct them to the following job posting:  https://www.mcctoronto.com/news/congregational-care-program/ . 

Hiring process for Music Director

In anticipation of Diane’s fall retirement, we have begun a thorough process to find an outstanding candidate to lead us into a new chapter of marvellous music ministry.  The position has been posted https://www.mcctoronto.com/jobs/job-music-director/ and a hiring committee has been developed which includes Diane, Jeff, Shelly, Mark Guiller and members of the choir.  We will leverage our recent experience in conducting a search and hiring a Senior Pastor.  We are deeply grateful to Diane for her commitment to MCC Toronto and continuing to lead our outstanding Music ministry as we transitioned from Brent to Jeff – this stability in our Sunday worship has been a key to our success in the past year.   

Annual Congregation Business Meeting

Pencil June 16 for our ACBM when Jeff will provide his Senior Pastor address and report regarding church goals and budget and the congregation will receive our annual audited financial statements, vote on any recommended by-law changes and elect a new Board member.  Bev Wybrow, our former Board Vice-moderator has served in the past two years, offering us her wisdom and guidance as we have bridged from Brent to Jeff.  Her term is up and we will be electing a new member.  If you are interested in putting your name forward as a possible candidate, please contact us at the email below.  At this point there is only one opening available.  A copy of the Roles and Responsibilities on the Board of Directors can be found in our website in addition to a document providing background regarding the role of the Board as a policy Board.

Remember that your Board represents you, the congregation.   If you have questions or concerns you can contact us via a confidential email at  bofd@mcctoronto.comWe are also looking forward to updating our site in the next few months to include additional background documents.   You can check us out at https://board.mcctoronto.com/directors
