Introducing our 2022 Executive Board

By Suzanne Boisclair, Executive Board Chair

Hello Friends—

I am so humbled and honored to be part of, and introduce to you, the Church of the Palms 2022 Executive Board! As you may already know, with the implementation of our new Constitution and Bylaws we have a strategic and nimble governance structure that allows us to respond quickly and efficiently to the changing needs of our church and have an even greater impact on those beyond our church family needing the love and energy we bring. We are ready to serve God, our beloved church, and the greater community!

In addition to myself, now in the role of Executive Chair, we are blessed with Dr. Phil Ladd as Chair of the Ministry Council and Eona Schulz as Chair of the Operations Council. John Durbin is assuming the Member at Large position until June, when Larry Cornelius will join the Board. And we continue to be blessed with Bertie Fitch as our Treasurer and Margaret Carpenter as Executive Secretary.

Oh — and of course Pastor Paul and Pastor Jim! We are so grateful for their guidance and encouragement to truly be the Church and the palms of Jesus.

We hope that you will look to this space for news, ideas and maybe even some inspiration. I speak for all of the Executive Board members when I say please share your ideas and don’t hesitate to contact any of us with questions or concerns. We are here for you!

We look forward to following the advice of Pastor Paul to Dream Big, Act Boldly and Love God in the coming year, as always with the emphasis on Act.

What are your Dreams for Church of the Palms that we can put into Action in 2022?

Commit to the Lord whatever you do and He will establish your plans. Proverbs 16:3
