Board and Staff

“I appreciate the fact there’s a lot of experience there. They have seen it, they have done it, and they are willing to share it and do.”

— Donald Miller, Faith United Methodist Church, Boynton Beach

Our talented staff members are professionals who share a passion for empowering churches, ministries and individuals to do all they can with the gifts God has given them. Our pledge is to provide responsive, personalized service that meets the needs of our customers, helping them fulfill the call to generous, Christian stewardship.

We do that in partnership with a board of directors that’s elected annually by the foundation’s membership at the annual meeting of the Florida Conference. The board, which meets quarterly, includes clergy and lay leadership from across the conference, with expertise in a variety of professions. Members are elected to three-year terms and may serve a maximum of nine consecutive years.
