Lay Leadership

Providence is a covenant community of committed Christians seeking to live out their faith in meaningful ways in the Charleston area and beyond. Our approach to church leadership is intentionally member-oriented.

Believing that "each member is a minister" we maintain laity-led teams. In addition we have a Ministry Coordination Council which along with staff  sets and implements church priorities and policies.

Ministry Coordination Council

All areas of ministry are represented on the Ministry  Coordination Council, which is comprised of Ministry Group Coordinators and  presided over by an elected moderator. Each team/group is responsible for budgeting and planning their ministry through frequent work sessions. Accountable to the Coordination Council and church body at large, each team reports monthly to both parties during scheduled business meetings where input and support is generated for special church-wide issues or ministry opportunities. 

Current members of the Ministry Coordination Council are:
