According to its constitution (see this PDF), the Pilgrim Lutheran Church congregation is governed by its Voters’ Assembly, which is empowered to administer and to manage all of its affairs, including approving and supervising the establishment and conduct of all congregational organizations and societies. The Voters’ Assembly also elects officers of the congregation (president, vice president, recording secretary, treasurer, and financial secretary), a Board of Elders, and four Program-area Coordinators.

  • Board of Elders: aid the pastor and congregation in spiritual work, look after the temporal welfare of the pastor and members in need, etc. Current chairman: Carl Gardner.
  • Facilities Coordinator: in charge of the physical structures and care of the buildings. Current FC: Remo Gualtieri.
  • Christian Education Coordinator: responsible for all educational programs of the congregation. Current CEC: Sarah Land.
  • Outreach Coordinator: responsible for any mission and outreach that is done outside of the congregation. Current OC: Dylan Landry.
  • Inreach Coordinator: responsible for all activities directed more towards the congregation. Current IC: Jeanna Watts.

The aforementioned individuals make up the Church Council, which is the governance body responsible for the congregation’s secular responsibilities and obligations. The Voters’ Assembly may establish other boards and committees as necessary.
