The Elder Board is comprised of the lead pastor and other leaders from within our congregation. They provide spiritual oversight, direction, and leadership for the overall church, entrusting the implementation of that direction to our core team and support team, under the leadership of Pastor Doug. The Core Leadership Team is held accountable for fulfilling the Elder Board’s direction.
Core Leadership Team
This team is made up of pastors, directors, and on occasion an elder, who meet regularly to discuss mission, vision and values. They execute the strategic direction set by the Core Team and elders annually for the church and lead our ministry teams.
