Those who serve in leadership positions with CBF Kentucky are nominated to serve by partner churches and individuals. The past moderator of the CBF/KY enlists these people to serve and they are elected by the voting body at the annual Spring Gathering of CBF Kentucky. 

The Coordinating Council meets three times a year; March, CBF Kentucky Spring Gathering (April) and August. The Executive Committee meets semi-monthly with the CBF Kentucky staff for planning and evaluation. Additional meetings for work groups are held separately in person or by conference call.
