Living Word’s Leadership Board consists of nine members of the church that have been nominated by the Nominations committee and approved by the Charge Conference. It also includes the Lead Pastor and the Executive Director. The Board is responsible for working with the congregation, the ordained ministers and the staff of Living Word to achieve our Vision to make disciples for Jesus Christ by becoming a church of invitation. You are always welcome to attend the non-confidential portion of the Board meeting. The Leadership Board meets every third Monday of the month from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. For more information, please contact Greg Rush at or Nancy Cleve at
