PASTORS AND MINISTRY LEADERS
ELDERS AND DEACONS
ELDERS and DEACONS make up part of the leadership that is elected by the congregation to lead the church in service and love.
Governing Elders are elected by the congregation to lead the church in life and mission. They are mature followers of Jesus who together seek to understand and do God’s will by equipping, teaching, and encouraging all the members of the church. Elders serve a term of three years, where they oversee and lead the direction of the church.

The Deacons are mature followers of Jesus who assist the elders by encouraging and stimulating the connection and care between
people in the church and the extension of that to the community. They also lead the church in cultivating hospitality (greeting, ushering, and fellowship gatherings), and development ministry (financial assistance and mentoring, Jobs for Life classes, and practical assistance).
