Leadership & Staff

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, and that no individual man should seek to mold the church in his own image. In light of this, our church is led by Elders (qualified, mature men) who seek to discern the Lord’s will for our church. The Elders oversee the worship services, ministries, and direction of the church keeping a special watch out for each member’s soul. Because every believer is indwelt by the Spirit of Jesus, the Elders make recommendations to the members of the church in order that they might pray and study Scripture for each decision the church makes. Our deacons oversee the physical needs of the church giving special consideration to the widows.
