What is our Governance?

Our church governance is a Elder Governance under the leadership of a plurality of Elders. The elder body is comprised of 7 elders: The Senior Pastor, who serves as Lead Elder and six lay elders, who are nominated and affirmed by the church body. Elders are elected to serve a six year term with the terms staggered so that only two men rotate off at a time.

What do Elders do?

The responsibility of an elder is first and foremost to devote himself to the ministries of the church through prayer, teaching, giving counsel to the Senior Pastor/Lead Elder and service to the church ministries. The elders are primarily responsible for the doctrinal integrity of the church. (1 Timothy 3:2; 4:11-16; 2 Timothy 4:1-5; Titus 1:9; 2:1)

What do we mean by Plurality?

The plurality of elders simply means more than one elder is governing our church. This is important because it provides mutual accountability against sin and unwise decisions. Full authority never resides with one leader in a plurality of elders. This model is consistent with congregations addressed in the new testament. (Acts 14:23; 15:22-23; 20:17; 1 Peter 5:1; James 5:14) Both Timothy and Titus were instructed to appoint multiple elders in each local church. With this biblical leadership model we believe there is strength in a plurality of perspective, wisdom, and accountability.
