Who We Are  |  Our Leadership Team

Meet our church leadership team, a group of pastors, worship leaders, teachers and elders. Together, they labor in many different areas to teach, train and impart the Word of God—so that every member can be equipped to grow in the faith.

And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.  Ephesians 4:11-13.
