October 2020 Deco T.E.C. Board Meeting Minutes

Attendance: Anita Bikowitz, Linda Mitchem, Mitch Mitchem, Melissa Dunn, Dan Sharpe, Angel Dutton, Breezy Smith, Amber Povey.

Dan Sharpe prayed us in.

Presidents report: Dan misses everyone. He got some things accomplished.

Treasurer’s report: Secretary of state appointment got postponed til December. Because Angel hit a deer with her car on the way there. Nothing has changed in the bank. Anita made a motion to accept the treasurers report as unchanged from last month. Breezy 2nd the motion. All in favor, none opposed.

Secretary/historian/registration/web designate:

Melissa mentioned that the po box needs to be changed or paid for. We previously talked about changing the location to kalkaska. LInda motions that we move the po box to kalkaska. Amber 2nd the motion. All in favor. Motion carried.

Angel said we need to revamp the application. Melissa said that we could take it off the website until that is taken care of.

Angel talked to a lawyer about putting a waver into the application so we can protect ourselves more. Angel and Amber will be working on that.

Linda makes a motion to receive the minutes written for the September minutes.. Angel 2nd the motion. All in favor. Motion carried.


Mitch has the trailers in two different locations and they need to be moved. Angel said she would get ahold of Toby. Mitch had tried to get ahold of Toby but he hasn’t responded.

Spiritual Director report:

Caroline Bartlett is considering prayerfully the position. She says she has someone else that she would do it with or could do it with. Breezy thinks it’s a good idea to have two part time spiritual directors would be good. 

Dan talked to Dave Bartlett about doing the position as the CCLI position. He also told both the Bartletts that if they didn’t want those positions that we would still love them on the board as adults at large.

Old Business:

Go over the additions to the update the requirements for holding the Deco T.E.C. weekends.

We need to get ahold of the teens that were so involved before and see if we can recruit them for the board.

Anita asked about her board position with her living in Florida. The Board thinks its a good idea to have her on the board.

Linda suggested that Scott Rutzen could be a Spiritual Director advisor. 

With Toby taking over inventory, than Mitch could go to Adult at large.

Amber said she would be comfortable taking over the registration and the historian position.

Next month we will do our nominations for the board.


Someone got sick on an outreach weekend and got covid. What do we do? We would change our applications to say that the ministry isn’t responsible for the issue. People would have to agree not to find the ministry to be the cause.

J.R.’s outline:

Angel likes the concept. But we need more substance that was given. 

Bible Trivia:

Dan has not done anything yet in regards to this. Dan is asking for help to get this going. We need questions, a score keeper, a person to ask the questions. Anita has a list of questions. Sunday November 1st, 7pm seems to be a good dry run day. 3-5 people are needed. Dan will send out a reminder.

Parking lot:

Weekend 43: Keep praying for a spring weekend

Outreach Weekend #1
