Join Us for Worship

Our Elders

Our church body is led by a plurality of men appointed to the biblical office of elder.

The elders function together to uphold the fundamental responsibilities of prayer, teaching God’s Word, administering the sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and providing servant-leadership and shepherding-oversight to the local church body.
