Valencia UMC’s new administrative structure, the Lead Team, met for the first time in March 2019. The Team initiates planning, establishes goals, implements action plans and evaluates effectiveness for congregational ministries of nurture, outreach, witness and administration. Subcommittees of the Lead Team have assumed the responsibilities of the former Finance/Stewardship, Trustees and Human Resources (SPRC) committees. The Lead Team is made up of lay, clergy and staff members. Current lay members are Terry Comp and Mike Barber, co-lay leaders, Lisa Bashor (representative to the Annual Conference), Laurie Ender, David Schutz, Doug Spicher, Steve Stebbins, Doug Werts, and Lori Wilson. Clergy and staff members are Pastor Nicole Reilley, Michelle Andrews, Sherry Klahs and Deb Baur. Martie Smith serves as the Team’s Chaplain.
