Leadership

Our church is led by a group of elders. These men have been called to care for and shepherd the church through teaching and preaching God’s Word, prayer and oversight. Staff elders serve in a full-time capacity and have assigned roles and responsibilities. Lay elders maintain employment outside the church.
