Senior Leadership Team

Our leadership team has nine positions made up of six pastors and three directors. The nine member team works together to implement our vision and administrate the day to day operations of our church. The six pastors are responsible for the shepherding responsibilities in the church. Examples of shepherding roles include: the theological positions of our church, our ecclesiology, preaching, the New Testament ordinances of the Lord's Supper and baptism, counseling, membership and church discipline, and planning and leading the worship services. Our deacons assist the pastors with extraordinary spiritual situations in the church.
