Officers and Administration

God asks the church to be a community of people sharing a common purpose and fellowship, continually growing in faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God. It is “his body, the fullness of him who filleth everything in every way” (Ephesians 1:22). 

It takes a great staff to make the everyday business of running a church successful!.  Meet the people who make up our church administration, key ministry leaders, and custodial staff.
