Our Leadership

We are governed by two boards. One board is a team of pastors and advisors that provide an example, guidance, and spiritual oversight to us. Their primary focus is the spiritual health of our church. 1 Tim 4:14) (1 Tim 5:17-22) (James 5:14). They were chosen for their pastoral leadership, exemplary lifestyle, and willingness to serve (Titus 1:5-9) (1 Peter 5:1-5).  

Our second board is a team of advisors that provides financial leadership, sets short & long-term financial planning goals, and ensures that we are good stewards of our finances.
