Leadership

We are lead by a team of Elders who function as equals.  No Elder has authority alone but only as a group of men called by God to serve in this way.  Our pastors are vocational elders who serve on our team with the other elders.

His primary ministry, however, is at home, where he and his wife Shawna have five children: Megan, Samantha, Jacob, Timothy, and Elizabeth.
