The Shepherd Team consists of six members serving three-year terms. They focus on God and our vision as they guide our ministries and guard our spiritual climate. They oversee and direct the staff, ministry teams, our church business affairs, and spiritual welfare of our congregation.

The final authority on important decisions lies with the members of Plymouth Covenant Church, not with ministers, officers, or the denomination. Church members direct our mission, approve an annual budget, and elect our Shepherds and Trustees. Congregational business meetings are held about once or twice a year following the weekend worship services. Prior to each congregational meeting, we gather for dialogue meetings to discuss proposals and discern God's will together.
