Role of the Liaison

POSITION PAPER

“Sometimes you don’t include processes simply because you don’t understand them well enough. Sometimes it’s because they haven’t even been discovered yet.” Philip Mella

LMSG Church Liaison is simply a volunteer that links the LMSG to the church body. Church liaisons are ambassadors to LMSG from their churches. By virtue of this position, church liaisons become key distributors of critical and timely information in their churches. As church liaisons begin to develop in their roles, they will share information to active duty, reservist, guardsmen, and veterans in their congregations to help all in areas of health, PTS, and other issues.
Moreover, church liaisons are agents of action for their churches. By initiating prayer meetings, and offering time-sensitive information, the church liaison will be able to help influence the retired, veterans, and active duty.
Therefore; The LMSG Liaison Committee has developed a process that will enable the Church Liaison to request funding for an event that might occur at the Church or an individual which we call Morale Welfare and Relief Team. The process begins with an event that occurs and the Church Liaison is made aware of and thinks that LMSG might be able to help in this event. The Church Liaison makes a request by using the LMSG Morale, Welfare, and Relief Request Form which is sent to the LMSG Liaison National Coordinator. At this point, the LMSG Liaison National Coordinator will call the LMSG Vice President to request that the LMSG Morale, Welfare and Relief Team meet to discuss the request from the Church Liaison due to an event that has occurred. The MWR team will review the request and make a recommendation to the LMSG Board of Directors or is less than $500 The MWR Team could authorize the funding to help with the event. If the amount is larger than $500 The MWR team would recommend to the Board of Directors and the Board of Directors will review the MWR Team’s recommendation and approve, disapprove or make changes to the recommendation.
This process for a Grant Request will help streamline the process to help the Church Liaison to solve an issue or event at their church or individual.
Recommend that the Board of Directors approve the LMSG Process for Grant Request as recommended by the LMSG Liaison Committee
