Mission

“Our mission is to manage the temporal affairs over the things that God has given to Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church”.

 

Duties

As members of the Board of Trustees, we have a spiritual position with a secular agenda to be temporal caretakers for the maintenance and increase of the Kingdom of God.  Therefore, we have significant fiduciary responsibilities.  Apart from the stewardship of administration, the trustee is called by God and approved by the congregation to adhere to sound business practices.  In other words, trustees must possess the requisite business acumen to manage secular matters on the Church's behalf, but must do so under the direction and guidance of the Holy Spirit.

 

Responsibilities

 

In addition to the overall definition of a trustee and because of the varied duties and responsibilities of the trustees, it is necessary to develop committees to assume specific duties for the effective management of the day-to-day business of the church. 

The trustees are responsible for:

  • ensuring the Church will be able to meet its financial goals and objectives in fulfilling the spiritual needs of the congregation and the greater community which it serves, 
  • the control and protection of all monetary assets deemed the property of the Church.  Consequently, the trustees must be consulted before any contract or agreement is entered into that will affect the Church’s financial position. The trustees, in turn, are expected to act responsibly by consulting with the Pastor and Deacons on significant financial matters,
  • preparing monthly, quarterly, and annual financial statements showing details of all the income and expenditures for the Church. These statements should be accompanied by an analysis of all significant factors influencing the Church’s financial position, 
  • overseeing any special committees in terms of any committee transactions involving the receipt and disbursements of funds,  
  • the care and custody of the property of the Church, and
  • interviewing, employing, terminating, upgrading, or modifying the job description(s) of full-time, part-time, or stipend personnel in consultation with the Pastor and Deacons, as required.

The trustees have no power to buy, sell, mortgage, lease, or transfer real estate property without specific authority by vote of the congregation.
