Who We Are
In regards to church governance, Scripture describes two distinct offices: Elder and Deacon. Elders are responsible for the vision, oversight and shepherding of the church, devoting themselves primarily to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Deacons provide oversight in a specific area of operation within the church, being of good repute and full of the spirit of wisdom. (Acts 6:3-4)
