Presbyterian Trustees

Who We Are:​
The Board of Trustees is comprised of six elected members who have been sought out by the nominating committee. Each Trustee serves a three-year term. According to our denomination’s constitution (Book of Order, G-4.0101), Trustees manage property for the church, including accepting and executing deeds of title; and manage any permanent special funds. The trustees may not act without the approval of the congregation granted in a duly constituted meeting.

What We Do:
Trustees focus on many of the financial and capital issues that a
church faces. Here at Capital Church, we see the Trustees’ role as that of a proactive and fiscally responsible steward of church property. The Board of Trustees executes its role by closely monitoring building needs in its annual walk-through each fall and by seeking input from the congregation. The board then identifies and prioritizes projects, investigates costs, seeks reputable contractors, and plans how to best finance the projects through capital campaigns. The board’s recommendations are then presented to the congregation for approval.
