To care for the financial and administrative affairs of First Baptist Church of Highland Park.
The Trustee Ministry is comprised of over 40 dedicated, God-fearing men and women who have made a lifelong commitment to serve as caretakers of the churches finances and facilities. This is one of the few ministries where members are elected by the Church body.
The current members of the Trustee Ministry are committed to using their talents and expertise to the glory of God, while serving in their role as Trustees at First Baptist Church of Highland Park (FBCHP). They have a mandate to care for the financial and administrative affairs of the Church, maintenance and upkeep of the facilities, investments, and oversight of the Highland Park Christian Academy. Their knowledge and experience come from many different fields including Banking and Finance, Accounting, Management, Administration, Personnel, Communication, Public affairs, Computer Technology, and Contract Administration.
“As Trustees, we continue to thank God for guiding us and for allowing us to serve Him and the people of First Baptist Church of Highland Park. To God Be the Glory.”
Services and Activities
The Trustee Ministry participates with the Metropolitan Area Trustees Association (MATA) to share and gather information about how to properly and efficiently attend to the Church’s business. The Trustee Ministry hosted the first MATA full-day seminar. The seminar was very successful and beneficial to many churches in the metropolitan area and beyond.
