At the June 6, 2016 meeting of the administrative council of Gobin Church, the members of the council discussed the process of moving toward an accountable leadership model of church governance. This is to fulfill our Fruitful Congregations Journey MAP (Ministry Action Plan), approved by a church conference vote in December 2015. Below is a portion of the manual provided by the Office of Church Development of the Indiana Conference of the United Methodist Church. This document explains much of the “how” of transitioning to the new model. For more on “why” see here.
