Board of Directors Q+A

The Foursquare board of directors is responsible for the management of the corporation and the missional effectiveness of the Foursquare movement. To better understand the form and function of the board, read through this helpful Q+A.

Roles include officers as well as selected and appointed directors. The following is a description of the individuals who would fulfill a given role.

Officer: Officers on the board of directors are those individuals actively serving on the Foursquare executive team. These are: The Foursquare president, general supervisor, director of missions, corporate secretary and chief financial officer.

Selected director: A representative from each district, selected to serve on the board.

Appointed director: A board member appointed to serve on the board.

Note: Most non-officer directors are senior pastors. Currently, the board also has five nonvoting board appointed participants, which are denoted by an asterisk. These are: the president of Life Pacific College, the chief operating officer of ICFG, the chief operating officer of Foursquare Financial Solutions, the associate director of Foursquare Missions International, and the interim chief executive officer of Foursquare Foundation.

The board of directors is comprised of 12 to 25 persons.

The board of directors meets face to face four or five times each year, and has a conference call each month.

The board of directors assigns committees to assist in the process of making informed decisions; there are currently 13 committees. An executive committee of the board meets weekly to handle the delegated business matters that are within policy.
