Denomination Organizational Structure
The Reynoldsburg Community Church is a part of the Global Methodist Church (GMC)—which is a new denomination in the Wesleyan tradition. The primary organization unit of the GMC is the local church. Our denomination is connectional in nature—meaning that we believe our witness is more effective when we are connected and partner with other GMC churches. Our congregation is one of the 20+ congregations on the Columbus East Circuit of the Allegheny West Conference of the GMC. The Allegheny West Conference is comprised of 22 circuits and over 540 churches. You can read the Transitional Book of Doctrines of Discipline here.
Church Organizational/Leadership Structure
The local church structure of the Reynoldsburg Community Church mirrors the structure we’ve had for the last 12 years. We are Board Governed—Staff and Ministry Leaders lead—and Laity Driven. We are governed by an 18-member Church Board which serve in three years rotating classes and fulfills all responsibilities assigned to in our denominational polity. Our Board is not a managing board, but governs our church by determining the mission, vision, policies, goals within which our churches executive leadership (Lead Pastor, Executive Pastor and Executive Director) must operate. Our executive leadership then helps to align our paid and unpaid staff to accomplish the Board’s goals and objectives. However, the most important aspect of our churches structure is that the ministry of the church is really in the hands of the laity who serve as the hands and feet of Jesus inside and outside the church building.
