RE:  Unity of the Hill Country Update from the Board of Trustees.

A quick update by the Administrative Leadership Team (Beverly Pryor, Minister, and the Board of Trustees). This update is a condensed view of the health and activities of the community plus a snapshot of current and future projects approved and underway by the community.

July 8, 2019:  Unity of the Hill Country met to review the new contract for Reverend Beverly. It seems like yesterday since she first stood before us but trust me it has been a year. She completed the milestones outlined in the original contract and will complete an exhaustive rubric of competency requirements culminating in Reverend Beverly’s Ordination next March 2020. The Board drafted and completed a revised and updated contract which was presented at the July 17 Board of Trustees meeting.
