The IVC St. Louis Advisory Council (AC) was re-established during the summer of 2015 in order to provide on-going support and counsel to the IVC St. Louis Program and its director. This Council of thirteen represent each constituency of IVC: volunteers, partner site representatives, spiritual reflectors, and St. Louis community leaders. Meetings are held quarterly at the Jesuit UCS Provincial office.
Current AC members are: Mary Baudouin (ex-officio), Rev. Tim Cook, Mary Flick, CSJ, Michael Harter, SJ, David Hilliard, Michael Keller, Marie Kenyon, Mark McKenzie, SJ, Nikeea Payne, Bernie Sammons, Vicki Simon (ex-officio), Kate Stroble and Robert (Bobby) Wassel
The AC members help identify needs in the St. Louis community where IVC can be of service and serve as a message multiplier in the region by spreading the Good News of IVC throughout our Region. In collaboration with the IVC Director and the Provincial’s Assistant for Social Ministries, members serve in support of the IVC- St. Louis mission. Throughout 2017-18 a strategic plan for IVC St. Louis in being implemented for managing well the growth of IVC ST. Louis over the next three years. Its goals will lay down a firm foundation for increased awareness of IVC and growth of volunteers, spiritual reflectors, and partner organizations whose volunteer needs we hope to serve in the St. Louis community.
