Our Elders

We believe in the plurality of elders with absolute equality among them in position, function and responsibility. Elders serve as under-shepherds, willingly exercising oversight of the flock.

They strive to be humble servants, committed to equipping the saints for the work of the ministry for the building up of the church (Eph. 4:12). They desire to see Christ glorified and treasured in the hearts of His people and the church make impact in the city and beyond.
