Trustees Ministry

What is the function of the Trustees Ministry?


The Trustees Ministry controls and directs legal and financial affairs of the Church. The Trustees Ministry has responsibility for property decisions, as well. As a practical matter, the Trustees Ministry handles the accounting of offerings, the purchase and sale of property for the Church, the coordination of management of rentals owned by the church, and the retention of legal counsel for the Church. In short, the Trustees Ministry is the governance arm of Church leadership, and provides oversight of any Church matters that have financial or legal implications. Some activities under the ministry direction are:


  • Management of the portfolio of the investments of the Church
  • Facilitation of purchase of properties under the vision of campus expansion
  • Establishment of a limited liability corporation to oversee GBC-owned properties
  • Counting and depositing of all tithes and offerings for the Church


The Trustees Ministry at Grace Baptist Church is dedicated to the service of stewardship to the church, the community and everyone who comes to worship here. We welcome your prayers, your support, your input and your constructive criticism.
