The Village is self-governed by the Leadership Team. Their role is to make sure our church is achieving its mission to be a catalyst for Life Change, Life Growth, and Life Purpose. This team consists of men and women from our church family who volunteer to serve a three-year term. They meet on the second Sunday of every month.

Components of Our Leadership Team:
- Staff – The team holds staff accountable and makes sure the church provides resources to help them be successful.
- Strategy – The team plans for the future to meet the church mission.
- To be a “Christ-like example”
Be an example for others, and evidence character qualities and public reputation that every Christian should possess. (Titus 1:5-9; 1 Timothy 3:1-7)
- To be an Overseer “Of Affairs of the Church”
Leaders are responsible for the overall direction of the church. They ensure that the elements are in place to meet the church’s goals. (1 Timothy 5:17; Hebrews 13:17; Acts 20:28)
- To be a Shepherd
Leaders make sure people are loved and cared for. Someone who guards, feeds and cares for God’s people like a shepherd with a flock. The shepherd is responsible to equip God’s people for ministry (Ephesians 4:11-13), by guarding them against false teaching, giving them good spiritual counsel and food from God’s Word, training them, and comforting and helping them (Acts 20:27-31).
The Village has an Elder Team that meets monthly and focuses on the spiritual growth of our church.
