Elders and Deacons

Our Elders are the spiritual leaders of our church. Because of their spiritual wisdom, maturity, and exemplary walk with the Lord, we have asked them to lead us. They pray for us, teach us, and help us to be true to our identity of belonging to Jesus, each other, and our community.

Our Deacons are servants who lead specific ministries of our church. Their character, love for the Lord, and serving hearts make them exceptional leaders for the work our church does.

For you, God, have heard my vows; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.  Psalm 61:5
