Elders

Our Elder Board consist of mature disciples of Jesus who help us make value based decisions for the flourishing of our people and the effective execution of our mission. These fine folks help keep our leadership spiritually accountable to their duties and roles. They also Serve our people giving pastoral council and prayer and we are so thankful for their wisdom and input. 

Finance Team

This team overlaps with our elders in part- but they are tasked with keeping our finances above board and on track in impact and effectiveness. They have full access to all our books and oversee annual audits along with other initiatives aiming at financial accountability and health.

Lay Council

This team meet's quarterly to answer this question: How do we know what we are doing- Is actually DOING the thing we THINK it's doing? In other words, they help keep us on Mission and moving towards our goal in practical ways.  We brainstorm, we assess, we pray.
