Our Leadership

Our leaders are volunteer parents who have a desire to serve the group and see Christ lifted up, both in our group, and in their homes. Our moderator, officers, and coordinators are elected whenever a position becomes available. Our Doyenne are appointed by unanimous decision of the governing board.


Our Moderator is a layman who oversees procedure at all business meetings and fulfills a neutral role when presiding at regular and special called business meetings. Because co-op is comprised of families, our moderator is also a man who can teach and admonish members with Biblical authority.

Doyenne/Trustees are senior members of our body, considered to be knowledgeable or uniquely skilled as a result of long experience in their field or endeavor. These ladies have helped to guide and shape our co-op into the organization it has become. We seek their wisdom and advice in many matters. They represent many learning styles and are available to offer guidance and wise counsel to our Directors and Members alike. Doyenne/Trustees are appointed by unanimous decision of the board whenever a vacancy occurs and serve 2 year terms.
