The OLUMC One Board is a form of congregational governance. It consists of 9 lay members, serving three-year staggered terms, who hold various responsibilities including staffing, trustees, finance, ministry, and more.
The extended One Board is made up of all clergy appointed to Oak Lawn UMC as well as representatives from each of our partner ministries.

Convener One Board / Class of 2022
Alexis (better known as "Lexi") is a Business Development Specialist for a genetic testing lab that specializes in pathogenic testing and women’s health. She fills her personal time by making meaningful connections with others, enjoying delicious food made by Le (her incredible wife), playing the cello, dancing, gardening (at least trying to), cuddling with her dog while watching something that is sure to make her laugh or cry, learning, praying, and serving with love. She is an Enneagram 2 if that means something to you!
She looks forward to being your Staff Pastor Parish Relations Committee (SPPRC) Chair and wants people to know she is always here to talk and receive feedback with an open mind and heart.
