Governing Elders (Session)

Governing Elders are Shepherding Elders who for a short term (3 years) serve in overseeing and leading the direction of the church. Our Governing Elders, together called the Session, is the group of 12-15 Governing Elders plus our ordained Senior and Associate Pastors who seek God's will for all aspects of our life together, from Strategic Planning to Personnel to Finances. See a list of who is serving as Governing Elders and reach out and contact them.

Shepherding Elders

We have a large group of Shepherding Elders which help to lead the Parish Life ministry, and serve as caretakers and spiritual leaders in their Parish Areas. They are nurturing the faith and life of our congregation. See list of who is serving as Shepherding Elders.


Deacons are elected by the congregation to lead the church in service and love. The Deacons are mature followers of Jesus who assist the elders by encouraging and stimulating the connection and care between people in the church and the extension of that to the community. They chiefly do this through our Parish Areas and Parish GroupsSee list of who is serving as Deacons.


Trustees are those the congregation elects to help manage and care for the facility and grounds and the organizational life of the congregation. They are employing wisdom to ensure that the care for and best use of the resources that God has given to the church. They are concerned with maintenance, improvements, matters of security and safety, good financial management, and policies that help use the church resources well. They make sure the lights are on and the AC is working! See list of who is serving as Trustees.


As a church family, we welcomed our incoming class of officers (trustees, deacons, and elders) in January. Click the image below to get to know all the new officers!
