The Constituency Model consists of concentric circles that represent levels of connection an organization’s constituents have to an organization.

Every vestry should establish written group norms and a vestry covenant. ECFVP offers examples from Episcopal congregations.
On Memorial Day and Veterans Day we honor and remember the men and women who have served in our Countrys armed forces. On these days, churches have an opportunity to remember those who are living - current members of the armed forces and veterans who make up our congregations and communities.

Looking for ways to make your meetings more productive? Consider adopting the practice of using a consent agenda.
In this new era the vestry and all leader groups will seek to give the congregation the gift of missional leadership. The governance functions in this agenda are concentrated, allowing greater time for the development of an atmosphere of discipleship formation in the church so that the people will be equipped to serve the world in the Name of Christ.
