Ministry Teams & Leadership
The Elder team & Ministry teams allow us to be more effective in reaching others for Christ and in conducting the business of the church. The Elder Team oversees all ministries of the church, provides guidance in fulfilling the mission statement and serves as governing body as required by law.
