SHBC Committee Interest Survey
Committees are an important part of the work of ministry at SHBC, but their effectiveness is dependent on the involvement and commitment of our church members to serve the church in these roles. If you are interested in being a part of a committee at SHBC, we hope you will read the information below, pray over your participation in this vital ministry, and fill out the form below. Should you have any questions or need additional information, feel free to call the church office or email us at: email@example.com.
Information on committees from SHBC Constitution and By-Laws:
The membership of all church committees shall be composed of active members of Shirley Hills Baptist Church. All committee members shall have been active members of the church for at least one year on the date they start service on the committee. Ideally, the membership of each committee shall represent a cross-section of the church and be familiar with the programs of the church.
The members of all standing committees shall serve a three-year term unless elected to fill an uncompleted term. Membership shall be on a rotating basis with one-third of the committee rotating off each year. Any member rotating off shall be required to remain off the committee for one year before being eligible for re-election. However, she/he is eligible to serve on a different committee immediately. Anyone elected to fill an uncompleted term of less than one year shall be eligible to be elected to a full three-year term.
