Congregational leadership is an important area of service in the church.

Each year, the congregation calls members who have been regular in worship, active in the life of the church, generous in support of our ministry, and faithful in their life and witness to the gospel, to serve as: trustee, elder or deacon.

TRUSTEES

The purpose of trustees is to serve the Lord by maintaining a warm, friendly, safe facility for the congregation and to monitor the church financial conditions.
