How we work as an organization

Following the Baptist tradition, Prescott is an autonomous congregation embracing the idea of “the priesthood of all believers.” We see every member as a minister.

All important decisions are made by a vote of the congregation, which meets at monthly informal “Congregational Gatherings” and in specially called business meetings. In addition to full voting members, the church recognizes affiliate members and “friends” of the congregation.

The congregation elects Church Council members to one-year terms and deacons to three-year terms. The deacons, each of whom is assigned a “flock” from the membership, assist the pastor in providing member care and offering spiritual guidance to the congregation. The Church Council focuses on administrative tasks. Both groups meet monthly. In addition, lay volunteers head committees within the congregation that help plan and carry out the church’s regular programs and ministries, such as education, youth, worship, outreach ministries, finances, and fellowship.

The pastor attends meetings of the deacons and Church Council, offering input and counsel to the members of those bodies. The pastor is an ex-officio member of all church committees and is welcome to attend committee meetings, though not required to do so. Certain committees in particular, such as the Worship Committee, meet fairly regularly with the pastor and look directly to the pastor for guidance and input into decisions.
