The Mission of the Committee on Ministries is to monitor the heartbeat of the Congregation, to assist in maintaining Right Relations, and to advise the Board and Staff on matters concerning DUUC’s effectiveness in meeting its mission and vision.
COM’s Work requires attentive listening, observation, probing, confidential dialog, caring intervention, and supportive intent. All Members of COM are available for confidential discussion. COM exists independently of the minister and Board, but provides frequent feedback to the minister, quarterly reports to the Board, and an annual report to the Congregation.
COM’s Means include the use of interviews, focus groups, and surveys.
The Committee on Ministry consists of five members. Three members are elected by the congregation, one member is appointed by the minister, and one member is appointed by the board. Committee members serve a term of three years.
