Our Leaders


Our church is led by a group of men called elders. It’s a term the Bible uses alongside “pastor” or “shepherd” (see 1 Tim. 3:1-7; Tit. 1:5-9; 1 Pet. 5:1-5). These men are appointed by the members of our church to teach the Bible, to provide pastoral care, and to equip us all for ministry to one another.

Our church is served by a group of men called deacons. It’s a term the Bible uses alongside “minister” or “servant” (see 1 Tim. 3:8-13). In Acts 6, we see the first church in Jerusalem setting aside deacons in order that the Apostles can give their time to the ministry of the word and prayer. Our deacons are similarly appointed to humbly serve our church in various practical ways therefore setting an example for all members of the body.
