Church Council

The Church Council consists of 9 members, plus our pastors, elected on a rotating basis to three-year terms. Council members are elected by the membership at the Annual Meeting in January so their terms can begin right away at the January Council Meeting. The Council meets monthly (3rd Monday of the month at 6:30 pm) and works with our pastors to articulate, implement, and keep the vision of the church. They are leaders with credibility, trust and commitment to the Lord and the Church.
