Our Leadership Team




“In Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then given generously; if it is to lead; do so diligently.” (Romans 12: 5-8)

Conshohocken United Methodist Church (CUMC) is one member of an 11-million strong global community that opens hearts, opens doors, and opens minds through active engagement.

Comprised of lay people from our own church community, the CUMC Administrative Council diligently serves as the primary administrative body of our local church. Their mission is to oversee the management of CUMC, manage its financial budget, plan and carryout programs that fulfill the church’s mission of nurturing and outreach, and act in accordance with the guidelines set by the Eastern Conference of UMC.
