Committee on Shared Ministry Member

Members provide advice and counsel to our ministers and, when requested by the Board of Trustees or deemed appropriate by the committee itself, give advice to the Board on how to better serve the spiritual health of the congregation as it strives to fulfill its mission.

Detailed Description: 
Appointments to the committee must be members of QUUF, and are recommended to the Board by the COSM Chair and the Ministers. The committee (which consists of a maximum of six people, not including the Ministers) meets one weekday a month with the Ministers, and after church one Sunday a month without them. Committee members listen and provide assistance and perspective to the Ministers; pay attention to the many facets of the fellowship and recommend or take actions to support and encourage shared ministry; facilitate communication and conflict resolution among the congregation, the Board, and the Ministers (especially during crises, transitions, or emergencies); and, as requested by the Board, conduct congregational assessments and provide feedback regarding Minsters' performance.
