A review and conversation on the current children/youth and family ministries as a preamble for the visioning of what these ministries can and should look like.  This included a brief overview of the Wednesday evening services with guest speakers that took place in January 2017.  Andrea outlined the steps and actions she has/is taking to re-image the Youth ministry.  Opportunity was given for questions and observations by the board members. The plan is continuing to be developed.

Name Change & Role and Responsibilities of Advisory Board

The board was advised that the Incumbent/Wardens have decided to focus the Advisory Board for 2017 and going forward with a new name and responsibilities.  The Advisory Board will be referred to as the Parish Life Committee and members of the committee will have responsibilities for a segment of the Parish List for pastoral care and support.  The current members were asked to consider their continued membership on the committee and provide the Incumbent/Wardens with a response in one-week.  The board members agreed this was a positive change.  The Parish Life Committee will still function as the Advisory Board when matters require a vote.
