Our Leadership

Elders are the spiritual guides
who oversee the work of the church.


Deacons are servants of the church,
who assist with church’s more physical needs.

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

Revelation 3:20
