We are seeking volunteers to serve on our Board of Directors. Each Director serves a three year term, with a maximum service of nine consecutive years. The Board supervises all operations of Mission Central. We meet to review policies and outcomes as well as approve the annual budget and all financial statements.

We meet quarterly (generally on a Tuesday at 3:00 PM) in person or over Zoom. We are looking for potential Board members with a variety of talents, but we especially need members with financial expertise.

If you would like to be considered for the Mission Central Board, please send a brief summary of your background, work experience and gifts you would bring to the Board. (A formal resume is not required but would be very helpful.)

Please email me at by September 15. THANK YOU in advance.
