LEADERSHIP TEAM

These four members are the primary leaders of our church family. They prayerfully seek unity in decisions regarding vision, mission, and shepherding our congregation and staff.

SHEPHERDING TEAM

This team shepherds our church family. The close equivalent in other churches would be called a “pastoral staff,” but our team includes those who bear the primary responsibility of shepherding regardless of official title. Their leadership is defined by being “first followers,” meaning they lead by being quick to follow as Christ leads us deeper into discipleship, unity, community, and intimacy with Him.
