It means just what it says. Kevin’s job is to represent the laity of our church. He will be giving opinion and feedback to Pastor John. He is available for members of the congregation to speak with at any time, especially if they have a concern they don’t wish to take to the pastor themselves.

The ministry entrusted to SPRC is in its name: Staff/Pastor-Parish Relations Committee. We maintain a connection with the United Methodist Church’s District Superintendent and tend to administrative concerns. More importantly, however, SPRC focus’ on the relationships between our pastor, musician, sexton, and our congregation. We are there to support our staff and all members of our church family by listening, encouraging communication, and by representing their hopes and concerns.
United Methodist Men
Young Adult Rep.
Realizing from my own time as a young adult that this demographic often pulls away from church attendance and participation, I want to help our young adults connect to the church in a way that makes sense to them, that makes them feel nurtured and heard, and that gives them an outlet for sharing God's love with marginalized populations.
