The congregation appoints a Board of Trustees, including a Chair of the Board of Trustees, which shall be governed by the policy and guidelines set forth in the Manual.
The Trustees are responsible for holding all congregational property for the congregation as part of the United Church; this includes land, buildings, funds and investments, and any other kind of property. The Trustees must give the same care and attention to congregational property as a reasonable person would give to their own property. In consultation with the Property & Facilities Committee, the Board of Trustees recommends to Council appropriate property and liability insurance coverage levels.
The Trustees must comply with all decisions about congregational property that are made by the BUC Council, the Presbytery, or the Conference; and all other United Church requirements for trustees and congregational property.
