Staff and Leadership

Church Leadership

Our leadership is led by our Lead Pastor and assisted by our Board of Elders and Church Leadership Team. Together, they recognize the authority of God, and realize that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. Our Board of Elders is comprised of six Elders, or overseers. The Church Leadership Team is appointed by the Elders to oversee a specific area of ministry as well as a team of people working in that ministry. Together their mission is to “equip the believers for the work of the ministry” and lead us in accomplishing our mission to Love God, Love people, and Serve the World.
