Deacons are the chief servants of the church who are responsible for oversight of finances, mercy, and church building primarily through the ministry of deed and prayer (Acts 6:1-7 & 1 Timothy 3:8-13)

One of the principles of our church government is that as a member, you are responsible for choosing the individuals you will submit to and trust to lead you. Because we are a Bible-centered community, we look to the Bible to guide us in how we raise up leaders as we do in everything else in our church. Below are two documents to aid you in this process. After reading through these, please fill out the nomination form for new leadership. Our current round of nominations is open as of April 1st. If you have any questions about our process, please be sure to reach out to a current leadership member.
