Trustees/ Endowment/ Property Committee
Our church trustees are Christian stewards of the property God has entrusted to the congregation. They supervise and maintain the property of the congregation to ensure that disciple-making ministries of the congregation are effective and that local legal requirements related to the property are satisfied.
Ghent United Methodist Church has been blessed by many who understand that the church is for yesterday, today, and tomorrow. This understanding has led many to give to our endowment which supports the present and future of our congregation. One part of our endowment is a scholarship program for members of the congregation. The endowment trustees meet bi-annually to review applications and select scholarship recipients.
Our physical plant requires constant care and up-keep. The property committee takes care of the maintenance of the plant.
