Our church is fortunate to have a team of highly dedicated and qualified elders and deacons that shepherd and serve the body. We believe in plurality of Godly leaders working together to lead and serve God’s people. As an elder led church, we follow the Biblical model for church governance which includes qualified overseers and deacons according to 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus. These men are committed to the high calling of following God’s leading and direction for His church.
