The Policy Governance Board (PGB) has 9 semi-permanent members who take a broader and more holistic view of the congregation and its ministries. Members are elected by the charge conference. They are nominated because of their active participation in the congregation’s mission and ministries. PGB members are encouraged to think strategically, focusing on Trinity’s mission, vision, and values. PGB focuses on Trinity’s mission and vision. This means they leave the details to the various committees. PGB helps committees know the “why” of Trinity’s mission and vision.

We have established a clear vision for this congregation of the United Methodist Church. At Trinity, our vision is "Seeking to be an inclusive faith community that compels us to extend God’s love in our neighborhood and world." Our mission is "To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world." Trinity believes we are uniquely qualified to fulfill our mission by providing a safe, diverse, and inclusive faith community in our East Hills neighborhood of Grand Rapids.
