Leadership Team Meeting Minutes – June 2018

June 2018 Leadership Team Update

Date/Time/Location: 6/4/2018, 6:30-9:00pm at the Ministry Center
Present:  Jim Vogel, Jay Justmann, Ron Takacs, Jim Kehoe, Jeff Guenther, Jason Seiberlich, Pastor Bill


Our meeting began with a devotion based on Psalm 130.  Here, we are reminded that sin disrupts our relationship with God.  However, because of God’s unfailing love, He loves to forgive us for our sins.  We have hope for redemption because Jesus has already paid the ultimate price for us.

Discussion Topics

Victory Stories: Mother’s Day service and video was truly outstanding. Thank You Sammi! The LeMarr fundraiser was also a success. We raised $1800 for the family.  Thanks to everyone!

Financial Ministry Plan: The financial ministry plan was approved by the Leadership Team for the fiscal year running from July 2018 to June 2019.  Any questions, comments, or concerns can be directed to the members of the Leadership Team.

Call Update: The Leadership Team is exploring all avenues as we evaluate our next Call to be our next Pastor at VOTL.  Pastor Bill and the Leadership Team are looking to make a Call in the near future.  More information as it becomes available.
