Church Council

During both morning worship services on Sunday, February 18, 2018, the Broadmoor Family will be voting to approve or reject a new set of Church Bylaws. Our existing bylaws have not been revised in 20 years. The most significant change to the current bylaws is the proposed addition of a church-elected Church Council. The Church Council would be comprised of pastors and lay members (both men and women), serving as the board of directors for Broadmoor. The Church Council would be primarily tasked with administrative decisions as they relate to the church. Members of the Church Council would be elected by members of the Broadmoor Family and would be composed of fifteen members.
