Welcome to membership on the local Seventh-day Adventist church board. You have accepted an important responsibility. The church board provides a platform for pastoral staff and church members to come together and make decisions to further the mission of the Adventist church. Being a member of such a board is a weighty and honorable task. With such an important responsibility, persons selected must individually portray in their personal and corporate life qualities of spirituality, fairness, tact, and good judgment. In addition, board members are trustees whom the constituency believes will operate in the church’s best interest. You have been chosen because your church believes you exemplify these qualities.
