St. Luke’s UMC – Nominations Process for 2020 Governance

The leaders of St. Luke’s Church Council, Lay Leadership Committee, Finance and Operations Committee, Staff/Parish Relations Committee, Advancement Committee, and Board of Trustees are entrusted with the strategic planning, decision-making, and policy implementation that enable the congregation to carry out the ministries of the church.  For descriptions of these governance bodies, please visit We take seriously the process of populating these governance bodies each year, and we value input from many voices.  To forward your name for consideration, please complete the application form. We appreciate your interest in serving!  Though there are limited governance roles, there are countless ways to serve with and through St. Luke’s.  To learn more about those opportunities, please visit

Alternatively, if you would like to recommend someone else for a governance role, please complete this brief nomination form. We will send an application form to each nominee.

Our 2019 Lay Leadership Committee will review all applications and recommend a 2020 slate that balances backgrounds, gifts, and experiences.  The slate will be voted upon at our January 2020 Church Conference.   Thank you for being part of the nominating process.  Please contact Rebecca Alsup ([email protected]) with any questions.
