How We Are Organized

New Ministry Structure
Chapel Hill will begin living into the Ministry Structure following presentation on the Policy Governance Board at Church Conference on June 21, 2017.  When Chapel Hill accepted the five prescriptions of the Vital Church Initiative, a move to a policy governance board led model for church ministry was included.  An eight member, plus the Lead Pastor, Board will work with the church vision, mission, and core values to implement and maintain a strategic plan.   The board will begin meeting over the summer and the attached organizational flowchart and details will be reviewed and perfected.  The Core Team structure, affirmed by the Vital Church Initiative team, will continue with the addition of a Communications Team and a Hospitality Team.  For more information please contact the church office, office@pchum.org.
