Our Leaders

Christ is the Great Shepherd of the sheep who leads and rules the church through His Word. In the New Testament He establishes Elders and Deacons as those who lead the church under his authority. Elders devote themselves to teaching the Word, prayer, and overseeing the church. Deacons promote unity in the church by meeting needs and stewarding our resources.
