Leadership

Our leadership team at the church consists of both elders and deacons. The elders carry the responsibility for the spiritual direction of the church and the pastoral covering, while the deacons take a lead role in directing the practical side of church life. We are grateful to God for such a fantastic and experienced church leadership!
