Organization of North Port Community United Church of Christ

There are many opportunities to serve Christ, His church, and the community at NPCUCC.

The primary leadership group is the Council. They are responsible for all aspects of ministry within and outside the church. They are comprised of various Board & Committee leaders, as well as a few nominated and elected at large members.

The Board of Deacons is responsible for the ongoing ministry functions of the church. They facilitate everything from Communion to Worship & Music to Outreach and Evangelism.

The Trustees are responsible for the physical facility including the maintenance and upkeep of the building and grounds. They are also responsible for recommending an annual budget to the Council for presentation to the congregation.

Other Committees are formed at the direction of the Council for the purpose of accomplishing differing aspects of ministry.
