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 vision pastor, Rev. Jake Waybright, and executive pastor, Rev. Mira Hewlett, are non-voting members of the Leadership Council.
The Leadership Council meets on the third Monday of every month in the Library. Any schedule changes will be announced in the Midweek Minute as they are made and posted on the kiosk in the Gathering. Executive Sessions start at 5:00pm and are followed by Open Sessions starting at approximately 5:45pm.
