Leadership


under Jesus our Chief Shepherd



Our Elder Team

All we do as leaders is governed by Jesus our "Chief Shepherd" (1 Peter 5:4) and submitted to His authority.


The men serving as Elders are called to "shepherd" (or "pastor") God's church - 

leading, teaching, and caring for the church on the foundation of the Word with prayer.
