Deep River Community Church Council

Our Council Members 2019

Deep River Community Church has a slightly different organizational structure to most churches.   It is self governing under its own  Constitution but is in friendly association with two of the major churches in Canada (Presbyterian Church in Canada and United Church of Canada).   Church administrative matters are looked after by the staff and Council.  Council consists of the chair and vice-chair of Council and the chair (or designate) of each program committee, the treasurer and assistant treasurer, envelope secretary, Council secretary, Personnel chair, Leading with Care chair, Revenue Committee Chair, denominational representative(s), the immediate past chair of Council and up to two members at large.  The Minister(s) is/are ex-officio voting members of Council..  A new Council is chosen each year at the Annual Meeting of the congregation
