The Prudential Committee, also known as PruComm, is the governing board of the church. It is composed of six officers — President, President-elect, Past President, Clerk, Treasurer, and Assistant treasurer — and six other voting members of the church.
Four committee members serve as liaisons to the four ministries of the church: Spiritual Development, Community Life and Heritage, Stewardship, and Social Justice. They provide support and communication to the groups, committees, and leaders under each ministry umbrella.
The PruComm sets policy and long-term goals, establishes committees, hires professional staff other than the minister, manages the operating budget in accordance with the by-laws, and performs other necessary duties.
Members are elected to three-year terms. Officers are elected annually to one-year terms and the positions of clerk, treasurer, and assistant treasurer are renewable annually.
