Port Nelson United Church
The Church Council is the governing body of Port Nelson, and helps to lead the church family in living out its mission and values. The Council is made up of the chairperson of various ministries and committees, the ministry staff, and several members-at-large. A roster of Visiting Elders offer pastoral care to every person in the church family.

Our Trustees are appointed by and on behalf of the church. They manage all property, real and personal held in trust, and they administer a number of Funds on behalf of the congregation.
