Leadership is vital to church operation and growth.  Ortega has a variety of committees that are imperative to the functions of the church.  These committees are responsible for finances, facility management, human resources, and the promotion and implementation of the church mission.  The primary committees of the church can be found below along with the current chair of each committee.


The Church Council

Bob Buelow, Chair

The church council provides for planning and implementing a program of nurture, outreach, witness and resources.  It also provides for the administration of the church and it’s temporal life.  The church council envisions, plans, implements and annually evaluates the mission and ministry of the church.


Staff Parish Relations Committee (SPRC)

Robin Fields, Chair

The SPRC reflects biblically and theologically on the role and work of the pastor(s) and staff as they carry out their leadership responsibilities.  They assist the pastor(s) and staff in assessing their gifts, maintaining health holistically and work-life balance, and set priorities for leadership and service.  The committee and the pastor have the authority to hire, contract, evaluate, promote, retire and dismiss non-appointed personnel.


Finance Committee

Frank Yong, Chair

Treasurer & Endowment Fund Chair, Ray VanLandingham

Stewardship Chairs, Tom & Gretchen Lynch

The Finance committee’s priority throughout the year is stewardship of financial resources.  The committee compiles annually a complete budget for submission to the church council, and they have responsibility for developing and implementing plans that will raise sufficient income to meet the budget.


Board of Trustees

Joan Risley, Chair

The Board of Trustees supervises, has oversight of and cares for all real property owned by the church, and of all property and equipment acquired by the church.  The Trustees receive and administer all Memorial Funds given to the church.
