Zion is governed by a Council of members who oversee and direct the congregation’s operation. In the case of Zion, the Council consists of a preset number of elected members and the pastor. The Council president is elected by the Council and at Zion is a lay person. The pastor functions as a kind of Chief Executive Officer of the Council, in addition to providing spiritual leadership in the congregation. The work of the congregation is overseen by the Church Council and carried out by several Committees of the church, which are led and staffed by lay people. The Church Council usually meets on a monthly basis to discuss and address the priorities of the church. Zion is a participatory democracy in which all members contribute for the common good.
