Our Staff

Ministerial Staff

Our pastors recognize their God-given calling and God-ordained authority to lead and protect the church according to the principles of pastoral leadership found in the Scriptures. They are servant-leaders who are under-shepherds of the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. They are responsible to devote themselves to prayer, the ministry of the Word, provide visionary leadership, and equip the saints for the work of the ministry.
