Our Team

We are committed to following a simple leadership structure. First, God and the Bible are our ultimate authority. Second, we are an elder-led church. The elders guide and oversee the church in corporate matters and more importantly, spiritual matters. Third, our staff oversees the ministries and day-to-day operations of the church. 


Our staff is made up of full-time and part-time ministry staff, as well as, full-time and part-time support staff.
