Leaders & Co-Leaders

The leaders and co-leaders for program presentations are married couples.  They have responsibility for the presentation that they are assigned.  The leader couple directs and leads the program.  The co-leader couple coordinates the support functions and becomes the leader couple for the next presentation.  Together, they ensure that the team and the presentation process follow the program and ministry guidelines. These couples are temporary members of the Parish/Congregation Steering Committee during the time of their commitment as leaders and co-leaders.  They work with the other members of the steering committee in the planning, implementation, and follow-up activities.  Ideally, they should have previously experienced the program.

They also complete the  Ministry Leadership form.
