UUCC is governed by an elected Board of Trustees.  We elect our Board of Trustees each year at our annual meeting.  Each member of the Board agrees to serve for a three-year term.  For the 2019-2020 Church Year, we have a 14-member board. 

The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process in our congregations and in society at large.

  • Cat White, President
  • Steve Doell, Vice President
  • Tadd Pinkston, Secretary
  • Shane Millette, Treasurer
  • Tom McKenna & Mary Schatzman, Past-Presidents

The Board is responsible for determining and upholding the mission and vision of our congregation, as well as for making financial and legal decisions.  The work of the Board is supported by our Minister and Leadership Council.  

The Leadership Council is made up of Board and Staff Members and is responsible for the day-to-day operations of our congregation.

Leadership Council Members

  • Rev. Joe Cherry, Minister
  • Tom McKenna & Mary Schatzman, Past-Presidents
  • Shane Millette, Fiscal Officer
  • Shirley Nelson, Staff Liason
  • Ken Kuehm, Facilities Manager

Other members of our staff are often present at Leadership Council meetings, as well.  We find that more voices at the table ensure thorough discussion.
