Our Church Leadership

Each of us is viewed as ministers with the purpose of sharing our faith with those around us.

As a church body, we elect council leaders, including a president and vice president, to help us focus our direction towards our mission to Build Lives through Worship, Mission, and Connection.  We also volunteers designated to focus on the many functions of the church and our mission efforts.  These leaders organize teams in the congregation to serve in these ministries.  There is always a way for anyone and everyone to get involved!
