OCCUR Holds “Board Report Card Clinic” for Faith-based Community

OCCUR and The San Francisco Foundation will host their fifth “A Model Built on Faith” Workshop on June 26th at the First Unitarian Church, 685 14th St. in Oakland.

This workshop will focus on “How to Ignite Your Board’s Effectiveness, A Faith and Community Based Approach. “

“Of all the capacity building and technical assistance we have provided over the past 20 or so years, no topic is more critical to an organization’s success than building a solid board of directors that is committed to the mission, the community impact and the on the ground, nitty gritty work of the organization,” says Carmen Bogan, OCCUR program director.

“This is of particular importance to the faith-based community,” she added.

The workshop will help organizations assess where their board needs improvement by examining the unique challenges facing faith-based boards and present specific strategies for moving board members into position to lead with excellence.

Presenters include Carmen Bogan, The Bogan Group; Norina Sharpe, SharpeVision Consulting; Brenda Lynch, Brenda Lynch Consulting; and, Holly Lofgren, Lofgren Consulting. They will give solid direction on how to develop a board to provide dynamic strategic direction, build and maintain strong governance, secure funding for optimal sustainability and manage financial resources.

“The good news is the faith community has an opportunity to have a greater impact than any other organizations,” said Bogan. “Faith leaders in particular need to attend this workshop, and they need to take the information and messaging to heart.”

Attendees are encouraged to RSVP online at www.occurnow.org, via email at occur@sbcglobal.net, by phone (510) 839-2440 or by fax (510) 268-9065. Check in begins at 8:30am and the workshops begins promptly ay 9am.

  1. THE PASTOR BY STEVE FINNELL
    Was there ever and office of, The Pastor, approved of or mentioned in New Testament Scripture? No, there was not. There was no single pastor appointed as the authority over any local church congregation.

    The word pastor is mention one time. (Ephesians 4:11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, (NKJV)
    Ephesians 4:11 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, (ESV)

    Pastors were shepherds. Bishops, elders, and overseers are one and the same; and they were the pastors or shepherds.

    1 Timothy 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach; (NKJV)
    1 Timothy 3:2 So an elder must be a man whose life is above reproach. He must be faithful to his wife. He must exercise self-control, live wisely, and have a good reputation. He must enjoy having guests in his home, and he must be able to teach. (New Living Bible)
    1 Timothy 3:2 Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, (New International Version)

    Titus 1:5-7….appoint elders in every city….7 For a bishop must be blameless, as a steward of God, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, (NKJV)
    Titus 1:7 Since an overseer manages God’s households, he must be blameless–not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain.(NIV)
    Titus 1:7 An elder is a manager of God’s household, so he must live a blameless life. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered; he must not be a heavy drinker, violent, or dishonest with money. (NLT)

    Acts 20:17,28 From Miletus he sent to Ephesus and called for the elders of the church. 28 “Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. (NKJV)
    Acts 20:28 Pay attention to yourselves and to the entire flock in which the Holy Spirit has placed you as bishops to be shepherdsfor God’s church which he acquired with his own blood. (God’s Word-Translation)

    Notice that the apostle Paul called for the elders (plural), he did call for The Pastor (singular).

    Acts 14:23 So when they had appointed elders in every church,and prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord in whom they had believed.

    The apostle Paul and Barnabas appointed elders (plural) in every church congregation. They did not appoint a pastor (singular) in every church congregation.

    Elders, bishops, and overseers are the same office and their responsibilities were to pastor or shepherd the individual church congregations.

    THERE WAS NO SINGLE PASTOR WHO HAD AUTHORITY OVER A INDIVIDUAL CHURCH CONGREGATION.

    Men today like to called Reverend Pastor.
    Reverend means awesome. So they want you to refer to them as Awesome Pastor.

    Psalms 111:9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name. (KJV)

    The Lord has earned the right to be called reverend (awesome).
    Is there any man that has earned the right to be called Reverend (awesome) Pastor?

    THE NEW TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES ONLY MENTION A PLURALITY OF ELDERS IN CHURCH CONGREGATIONS.

    MEN HAVE INVENTED THE REVEREND PASTOR (SINGULAR) AND HAVE PLACE HIM IN AUTHORITY IN LOCAL CHURCH CONGREGATIONS.
