Leadership Development Committee

compassTake the LDC Survey!

The Leadership Development Committee’s purpose is to encourage and facilitate the participation of individuals in church committees and groups; to support our lay leaders by promoting leadership development throughout our congregation; and to nominate people to fill vacancies on standing committees and as parish officers prior to the Annual Meeting.

The LDC is always interested in talking with congregants about volunteer opportunities at our church. The Guide to Committees and Groups at First Parish provides a comprehensive overview of the numerous ways to get involved, help First Parish, and meet other congregants. Follow this link for information about Volunteer Opportunities at First Parish.

For more information on the standing committees listed in our bylaws (including specific responsibilities and time commitment), click on one of the links below:

(Job descriptions for the other three standing committees — Denominational Affairs, Stewardship, and Trustees of the Trust Funds — are not yet available.)
