Leadership is an extension of discipleship. It calls for Christians who are committed to increasing their leadership skills and deepening their spiritual practices. Here are the Committees and Boards that serve as leadership for Wesley United Methodist Church.
The Wesley Administrative Board ( also referred to as the Church Council) is the primary administrative agency of the local church providing for planning and programs to best support the nurture, outreach, witness, and use of resources of the local church. This Board serves to provide for the vision and strategic plan of the Church and also annually evaluates the mission and ministry of the Church.
