Our leadership team is structured to reflect an application of the church as written in the Bible.

​The Ministers function as the servants, teachers, and leaders within their specific skill set and calling.

​The Shepherds function as the leaders who work with the Ministers to guide the congregation in an example of mutual submission. All of this is done so that Christ is seen as head of the church, and everyone has a practical form of accountability.
