Mutual Ministry     

The Mutual Ministry Team is the communication link between our pastor and other staff and the congregation.  The team works to encourage the congregation to partner with the pastor and staff in the mutual ministry of St. James Lutheran Church.

Team Purpose: 

  • Be a support for and an honest, confidential voice to the pastor
  • LISTEN to the congregation and the pastor
  • Meet six times per year, with additional meetings called as necessary
  • Prepares an annual report to the Council and congregation on the state of the congregation's mutual ministry
  • Annually recommend compensation adjustments for the pastor and staff
  • Approve the sabbatical plan for the pastor
  • Make recommendations to other ministry teams for programming that would enhance our mutual ministry at St. James

Current team members: Dave Runkle, Marcia Katt, Allan Winter, Brad Dunning
