Christ gave different gifts and roles to his people (Ephesians 4:11-12) to equip them to do his work and build up his Church. Some of our leaders are church employees while many of our Board of Directors and Deacons are not. In addition to the leaders on this page, we have leaders in our Home Groups and other ministries who serve faithfully throughout our church.
