Mission Area Teams (Council)

Mission Area Teams (Council)

When Mission Area Teams meet as a body, they are Council. Council is a body of elected lay and clergy representatives who oversee the program and budget of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota between meetings of the yearly ECMN Convention. Council meets quarterly. Each meeting will be a joint meeting of all elected bodies – Council, Standing Committee, Trustees and Commission on Ministry – in the mornings, with the afternoons spent meeting separately. While there are only four planned meetings per year, there may be additional meetings for committees of Council, depending upon who is elected from within to serve on those committees.
