Governance

Congregation
Jordan Lutheran Church is governed by the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church of America) in that we follow their structural and operational models which provide for an elected council to manage church operation. Members of Jordan can contact the church office for a copy of the Jordan Lutheran Church Constitution. For more information on the ELCA, visit them at ELCA.org.

Congregational Council
The Church Council consists of the pastor and not more than 13 elected members of the congregation who are responsible to carry out the actions described in the Church Constitution.  Members of Council serve as representatives of Jordan’s congregation in ensuring that the church is operationally functional and spiritually sound. The Council meets monthly in Jordan’s conference room.

Audit Committee
Worship and Music Committee
Committee on Christian Education
Finance Committee
Committee on Church Property
