Interested in Joining the Family Ministry Team?

The Family Ministry Team meets 7 times a year, usually on Thursdays 6:00-7:30pm.

Job Description of a committee member: listen to a diversity of stakeholder voices, note what you are hearing and bring it to the team, reflect together, create vision for family ministry, and communicate that vision to the working teams (led by DRE) and back to the stakeholders. Committee members are also free to take on projects as desired, and can call upon the support of the committee as a whole for those projects.

If you are interested in joining the work of this committee, contact Sara Lewis at dre@ouuc.org
