Elder governance intentionally delegates responsibility and authority to others, particularly in the area of their giftedness and calling. Only by establishing policies can elders effectively delegate responsibilities to people, accompanied with the authority to exercise ministry. Day-to-day operational matters and accompanying authority – are delegated by the elders to our staff. MCC’s bylaws explain more about the role of elder. You can find this document in the ‘What We Believe’ section of our website.
