Leadership Council

CUMC Leadership Structure

The Leadership Council is designed to have effective and efficient decision-making in light of the larger mission of CUMC to make disciples of Jesus Christ serving the greater Carlisle community and beyond. We elect 9 Leadership Council members who each oversee an area of ministry and mission within the church. Each area has teams that make the ministry happen that involve over 100 of our members! The lead pastor, Rev. James VanZandt, and associate pastor, Rev. Mira Hewlett, are non-voting members of the Leadership Council.
