We believe that every Christ-follower is in "full-time ministry," carrying out the message of Jesus to the world. That said, our church is led by a number of gifted and passionate people—volunteer as well as staff—who serve for the sake of the good news of Jesus to our community and to the world.

Community Pastors

Community Pastors are volunteers who minister to the sick, hospitalized, home-bound, Heaven-bound and often forgotten people of our congregation. They are selected, recruited and trained, then commissioned by our Elder Board. They bring Jesus and compassion to through a touch, a look, a smile, a prayer, a word from God’s Word, even a song.
