New Leadership Team Model to Guide Ortega Church 

Ortega Church began 2019 guided by a new leadership model and team members. The Single Board Governance Model simplifies the church leadership structure in order to be more innovated, responsive and effective in our ministry in a rapidly changing missional context. 


The single board Leadership Team will fulfill the traditional leadership functions of the Church Council, Board of Trustees, Finance Committee, and Staff-Parish Relations. Our prayer is that with the single board model Ortega Church will be better able to assess the current context of our church and the community we seek to serve in order to clarify the church’s vision, focus and resources to develop and implement effective strategies for current and desired ministries. 


The Leadership Team is comprised of 14 Lay Leaders who will guide and partner with Ministry Action Teams and Staff Team members to design, develop and deliver Ministry Action Plans. The Leadership and Staff Teams will model a community that loves, learns and leads together to develop the capacity for creative ministry and problem solving. 


While the Single Board Model is new to Ortega Church, and generally to mainline churches, it is rapidly becoming a hopeful and appreciated strategic model for church leadership. The new model will certainly be a learning and growing opportunity for our leaders, pictured below, and our church.
