A regular meeting of the elders of Harris Creek Baptist Church was called to order March 14, 2018, at 6:30 a.m. Jim Underwood, Chair, presided. A quorum was present. In attendance were Blair Browning (via phone), P. Michael Smith, Brad Lail, Stacey Smith, Chris Holmes, Bill Neilson and Kevin Jackson. Also in attendance was Joey White, Drew Greenway, Rebecca Harris, Jon Green, and Trent Horner.
Jim Underwood opened the meeting in prayer.
The elders reviewed and approved the minutes from the February 21st regular meeting.
Joey White gave a brief overview of the February financials for the church. Church receipts outpace the budget through the first two months, indicating the continued commitment by our congregation to Harris Creek. Joey also updated the Board on the financial standing for construction of the new sanctuary. [After this meeting, the Board developed a financial plan with our bank, First National Bank of MacGregor, to fund the full cost of the sanctuary, including needed audio/video projected costs]. Future 2018 budget surpluses will directly improve the financial standing of the project.
The elders and staff formalized the leave of absence parameters with Brady Herbert with continued expectations for Brady to return when his leave is complete. The Board also discussed communication separately with Brady and then the church to be delivered on March 18. Lastly, the Board approved the preaching schedule in Brady's absence.
Stacey Smith closed the meeting in prayer.
