Ministry Leader Nominations

The role of Ministry Leaders is one of the most critical positions in the church. Ministry Leaders are responsible for ensuring that their ministry and its activities, programs, and events are aligned with the Pastor’s vision for the church. Ministry is important because it is the vehicle through which we remain true to the beliefs, teachings, and practices of Jesus Christ.
Deadline:  Sunday, October 27, 2019.

Year End Ministry Evaluation Form

Preparing for a new year is always exciting. It requires a look back at the previous year. We must assess our successes and failures. If we are honest, we will admit that some things worked better than others. Yet, we cannot stay focused on the past. As preparations are made for a new year, we must look ahead within our ministries, and ask ourselves some questions.

 

Budget Proposal Forms

“Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Will he not first sit down and estimate the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it? For if he lays the foundation and is not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule him.” (Luke 14:28-30)  Budgets are prepared for the purpose of ensuring that our spending reflects our church’s vision while “estimating the cost” of all ministry plans, events and projects of STAR. Ministry Leaders should be mindful of the following things:
 
1. Each ministry that seeks to receive church funds must complete a Budget Request Form to receive funds in the following year. The Deadline to complete and return your Budget Request Forms to the church office no later than Sunday, November 17, 2019.
 
2. Ministry leaders are encouraged to complete the 2020 Budget Request while they are planning the 2020 Calendar to make sure that you are thinking through which events will require money.
 
3. Incomplete forms will not be accepted.
 

 

Event Calendar Request

During the year Star and its ministries host various events and activities that under gird the Pastor’s Vision for Star and our yearly theme. In hosting and planning our calendar we want to be efficient and effective. As a result, we are asking that each ministry plan no more than 2 events and 1 outreach activity per year. Our goal is that have calendar filled with quality events that gives God glory and impact the Kingdom and community.
