Elders and Deacons
“So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock.” (1 Peter 5:1-3 ESV)
Our congregation selects elders and looks to them to shepherd individual members and the congregation as a whole.

“For those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 3:13 ESV)
Our congregation selects deacons and looks to them to serve the ministries and facilities that constitute our organizational life as a church.

Other Ministry Leaders
In addition to the leadership of our elders and deacons, many of our ministries are carried out by church members who volunteer their efforts as leaders of a ministry team or project (see Ministries page).
