St. Mark follows Policy Based Governance to run the church. This means that we have an elected Parish Leadership Council (PLC) that establishes policies that govern how the Senior Pastor serves the church in helping us achieve our goal of connecting people to Jesus. The PLC does not dictate the "how", but leaves that up to the Pastor's best judgement as long as no policies are violated. The PLC works in the congregation's best interest and holds the Senior Pastor accountable for working within the policies. Thanks to this governance process, the people of St. Mark can trust that their leadership is governing them responsibly and can focus on serving one another and the community.
The PLC, pastor, staff, and entire congregation also follow constitution and by-laws of St. Mark, found below:
