The Facilities Management and Planning Committee (FMPC) is a Standing Committee of the Congregation Council. It has the major responsibility for managing all property belonging to the Congregation and planning for future needs. Membership is comprised of six members, five of whom are appointed by Council. One of these is an elected Council member, who serves as liaison with Council. The sixth is a Staff member appointed by the Head of Staff and who works with property and maintenance issues. The FMPC Staff member serves as liaison between the FMPC, various property teams, and the Staff. Current members of the FMPC are Jim Brooks, Julie Deay, Rod Hollenbeck, Dave Johnson (co-chair), Paul Proefrock, and Lyle Ziemann (co-chair).
Property Teams report to the FMPC and operate within policies and guidelines established by the FMPC. These teams serve a very important role in handling many of the day-to-day maintenance and custodial needs at Good Shepherd, such as minor mechanical and electrical maintenance, landscaping upkeep, information technology oversight, small painting projects, and the like. Volunteers who enjoy working with their hands are always needed, both for one-time projects and for ongoing needs.
Julie Deay, Business Manager, maintains an ongoing list of tasks that need to be done that is changing constantly.
