Leadership

Eighth Day has no paid leadership.  Community members share leadership according to their gifts and call.  During our worship services, one person acts as liturgist, another reads the scripture, another gives the teaching, and others lead the music.

Leadership of specific events (Camp Meeting in October or Community Day) in early spring is also shared according to call and gifts.

Covenant and Intern members meet once a month to make basic decisions about the church.  Four times a year community members are invited to these meetings for other kinds of decisions, including the budget meeting in December.

The Servant Leaders mission group meets weekly to care for the pastoral needs of the community, to make decisions that do not require entire membership consultation and to prepare for the monthly membership meetings.
