Central MD FCA Board

In a broad definition, the role of the Leadership Board is to work with the FCA director and staff to increase capacity and expand the work of FCA in their region.  Their primary function is to provide local leadership in implementing the already established vision, mission and programs of FCA within ministry policies and guidelines. The longevity, stability and leadership of an area FCA ministry rests in the hands of a healthy, involved local Leadership Board. Their steady guidance, support, encouragement and involvement on the local level creates a strong foundation to build and sustain a ministry over decades.
