Organization and Members
Global Community Ministry (GCM) at NCC encompasses efforts throughout the congregation to reach out in service to the world beyond the congregation. This includes but is not limited to local, national, international, and global missions, racial and other justice issues, outreach to our local community, and marketing.
These varied efforts are overseen and supported by three elected members who form the GCM Team:
One GCM Liaison
Two GCM Coordinators
This Team provides tactical tools and planning, oversight, and assistance to the projects and their leaders throughout the congregation. The GCM Team Liaison maintains robust communication with the Core Leadership Team and works with the two GCM team coordinators to oversee, coordinate, and support outreach projects. Occasionally the Team itself or a member leads an outreach activity, but generally the team exists to help, coordinate, and represent other ministries, groups, and leaders in their outreach projects. GCM Team members are elected one per year on a rotating schedule to ensure team and program continuity. The Minister of Youth and Mission provides guidance.
