We believe Jesus Christ alone is the Head of the Church and as head has ordained that individual churches should be blessed with the spiritual rule and ministry of office bearers. Therefore, we believe it is our duty to seek to discover those to whom Christ has imparted the necessary gifts for service.

Our Governance Structure:
• The Congregation determines the spiritual tone, strength and direction of our church through fasting and prayer.
• The Deacon’s Ministry serves the members of the church spiritually, setting policy in the management, and look after both the church’s corporate and financial affairs.
• The Senior Pastor serves the church by providing vision, oversight and management of the church through wise counsel and the faithful teaching of the Word of God.
In addition to those who govern, we are grateful for other leaders within our church who regularly share their gifts in service.

NOTE: Ministries will be added on a needed basis. There will be monthly meetings with administrative and servant leaders (see calendar). This meeting will be held the last Monday before the first Sunday of each month unless changed by Pastor Collier. Each ministry leader must have a report of ministry progress, plans or concerns at each meeting. This will be strictly enforced in 2020.
