Our congregation is directed by leaders who love Jesus and strive to be servants for him. Leaders in Christ's church are not "bosses." They are called to follow the example of Jesus who came as a Servant.
The church is served by a group of men called Shepherds, or Elders. Their function is to oversee the spiritual needs of the congregation as described in the Bible (Acts 20:28).
The Deacons (Servants) carry out the day to day operations of the church. As Servants, they manage the individual ministries of the congregation.
Our Ministry Team directs the teaching ministries to Adults, Children, and Students.
