Church Council

The purpose of the church council is to plan a program of nurture, outreach, and witness; implement the plan; provide an administrative infrastructure; align the plan with the mission of the church; evaluate the effectiveness of the plan; act as the administrative agency of the charge conference.

Committee on Lay Leadership

The Committee on Lay Leadership oversees the identification and development of volunteer leadership at Midway. The Committee supports the care for the volunteers at Midway by inviting, connecting, equipping and sustaining volunteers for Christian service. Initiatives include the nominations process, the Volunteer Management Practices and developing tools for church leaders.

Finance Committee

The Finance Committee develops and administers a coordinated plan of fiscal and administrative policies and procedures for the church. It oversees the financial health, the annual audit, provides financial direction; and communicates the church’s financial condition to the Church Administrative Board.

Staff Parish Committee

The Staff Parish Committee acts as a liaison between staff, clergy and the congregation. The committee reflects biblically on the role and work of our pastors and staff as they carry out their responsibilities. This committee also works to ensure that Midway is a fulfilling place to work. Members cannot be related to a Midway UMC staff member.
