Board and Councils

Input and oversight

Faith Builders receives input and oversight from three primary groups representing the conservative Anabaptist constituency–the Board, Advisory Council, and Pastoral Council.

Faith Builders Board

FB Board

FBEP is a para-church organization that serves the conservative Anabaptist church. A board, regularly soliciting counsel from the Advisory and Pastoral council, runs FBEP. The board selects board and council members from various Mennonite churches, conferences, and fellowships. The board maintains at least five board members and nine council members. The board meets at least twice per year at the FBEP facility and confers at other times as needed.

Pastoral Council

The Faith Builders Pastoral Council is composed of pastors from the FB constituency. Their purpose is to provide a link between FBEP and the churches that send students to FBEP. They pursue this purpose by reviewing the theological positions and sentiments of FBEP, reviewing the texts that are used in classes taught at FBEP, and by representing the concerns and interests of the constituent community to the board and administration of FB.
