The MPBC Leadership

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.
