Leadership Council Perspective-Theo Byrns, RScP


Greetings to All:

   The Leadership Council is discussing and designing a possible guide to achieve the goals presented to us in Rev. Doug’s ten-year vision.  This vision was considered and approved by the Leadership Council around the time when Rev. Doug’s Letter of Call was renewed.  The vision encompasses most areas of CSLGLV, and the members of the Leadership Council are each working to design a road map to achieve a given goal.

   The area with which I am involved is volunteerism.  I am looking at every facet of this area, from personnel to all the opportunities to serve, that exist at our Center.  First, the time has come to have an actual Volunteer Coordinator to organize and to insure that every volunteer need that may come up is met.  Second, it is also time to make the congregation aware of the many areas in which they may volunteer or, in other words, do sacred service.  The areas are kitchen, bookstore, pastoral care, clean-up days and/or maintenance, special events, audio-visual, outreach, prosperity acceptor, offering count, youth and family, beyond Sunday, music, and the welcome center.  That is to say, there are lots of different chances to serve.  Remember that CSLGLV depends on all of you to “step up to the plate” and be an integral player, not only in achieving vision goals, but also in supporting the Center with your time and your skills; after all, you are all perfect and complete expressions of God!!!!

   The point of all this is to publicize the need for a Volunteer Coordinator (How about you?) and to make the congregation aware of the needs and the opportunities at the Center.  As Peter said, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” (1 Peter 4:10).
