Building Relationship - NOT Religion
Board of Directors
Bob has been a part of St. John’s MCC since January 1992. He says, “I am currently the Treasurer on the Board of Directors and have helped out in many ways over the years. I have learned that if I pick something interesting, and get involved helping out in it, then new opportunities might open up.”
Marty has been a member of St. John’s MCC since 1994. He says: “My background is Northern Baptist followed by Midwest Presbyterian). I have been on the Board for at least seven years (I can’t actually remember how long), where I currently serve as the Secretary, taking minutes at the meetings, as well as helping count the offering on Sundays and signing checks.”
Board of Trustees
Board of Trustees Chair
Growing up, Al Williams’ faith tradition was a blend of Baptist and Church of Christ Disciples of Christ. Many years ago, despite the old tapes that he had been fed over decades, he finally realized that God loved him just as he was with the help of St. John’s MCC. The concept of building and relying on a personal relationship with God, rather than on the “yokes of religion” helped Al understand the true meaning of following Christ. Al leads the Board of Trustees and is involved in other ministries.
