Q:

What is a church trustee?

A:

A church trustee is a layman who deals with the secular side of running the church. Church trustees are typically responsible for ensuring the church's compliance with secular legal requirements and the management of the church's property and financial affairs.

The method of selecting church trustees varies between denominations and congregations. In some churches, the trustees are elected by the congregation; in others, the trustees are appointed.

The church trustees' role also varies considerably. In some churches, the trustee is essentially a custodian who is responsible for maintaining the facilities. Other churches rely on a board of trustees for tracking investments, updating insurance policies, serving as official signatories and managing church funds.
