East Shore Unitarian Church follows a policy based governance structure.

“A congregation needs:

  • A unified structure for making governance decisions. The governing board represents the membership by articulating mission and vision, evaluating programs, and ensuring responsible stewardship of resources.
  • A unified structure for making ministry decisions. Program leaders (paid and unpaid) work harmoniously to create effective programs with the support of a structure that delegates authority and requires accountability.
  • A firm and well-marked boundary, with active mutual communication and accountability, between governance and ministry.”

from Governance and Ministry: Rethinking Board Leadership, by Dan Hotchkiss – p. 58.
