Leadership & Elders

Leadership Team

The Village is self-governed by the Leadership Team. Their role is to make sure our church is achieving its mission – helping people experience 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.

Scriptural Authority for the leadership team

  • 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
    Ensure that the elements are in place to meet the church’s mission  – to help people experience life change, life growth, and life purpose. (1 Timothy 5:17; Hebrews 13:17; Acts 20:28)
  • To be a shepherd
    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, comforting and helping them (Acts 20:27-31).

Elder Team

The Village has an Elder Team that meets monthly and focuses on the spiritual growth of our church and supporting our staff in prayer.
