Columbine United Church is led and governed by a Church Council, elected from the membership of the Congregation each year in May. Council consists of the Moderator, Vice-Moderator, Treasurer, Clerk of Council, Immediate Past Moderator, the Chair of HR, The Chair of Property and Finance, the Chair of Ministry and Mission team and two at-large members. The Pastors are non-voting members of Council, as is the Clerk of council. Council members serve for a 3-year term. The Vice-Moderator moves into the Moderator position after serving one year as VM, while the Moderator moves into the IPM position after serving a one year term as Moderator. Our leadership transitions take place after our Annual Congregational Meeting in May of each year.
