LEADERSHIP CULTIVATION COMMITTEE

The purpose of the Leadership Cultivation Committee (LCC) is to recruit and present to the Congregation at the Annual Meeting the most qualified candidates to fill vacancies on the Church Council. The LCC strives to match the passions and gifts of members with open positions, enabling the work of the church to set the table for all who hunger and thirst.


The Leadership Cultivation Committee is energized by the talent in our congregation and we look forward to finding out what passions and vision you would like to bring to a leadership role in our church.


For more information, please contact Jessica Gemm Chair of the Leadership Cultivation Committee (LCC).

Get Involved!

In addition to cultivating leadership gifts, we are also actively looking to match the passions and gifts of FCUCC members with key leadership positions on our Church Council. 


Additionally, the Leadership Cultivation Committee is also open to applications from those interested in joining LCC: 


• Members for the Leadership Cultivation Committee
LCC members bring a diversity of perspectives and involvement to building leadership in our church from ‘connectors’ who love meeting and getting to know people, to those who are great at discerning people’s strengths and potential, to those who just care about building leadership abilities within FCC.


In addition to self-nominations, we welcome referrals of others you believe would bring positive impact for these or future openings. Through conversations and interviews, LCC will identify the roster of candidates to present to the Congregation in the January Communicator for information at the annual meeting for a vote. 


The Leadership Cultivation Committee is energized by the talent in our congregation, and we look forward to finding out what passions and vision you would like to bring to a leadership role in our church. For more information, please e-mail or call Jessica Gemm (jess.robinson@gmail.com, 617.335.5040), Chair of the Leadership Cultivation Committee, or reach out to any LCC member.
