The New Testament clearly teaches that the church is to be led by a plurality of godly men. Their assignment falls into four main categories. First, these men are given both the responsibility and authority to skillfully and lovingly lead the flock. Next, they are to feed the flock, offering accurate and insightful teaching of the Scripture. Third, they are to care for the flock. This care is shown in the love, concern, prayers, ministry, and adept management of church resources. Finally, they are to protect the flock from harmful influences and beliefs.
Elders: Pieter Barnard, Dick Clark, David Mozingo, Dan Little, Jim Hall, and John Smith.
Deacons are the servant-ministers of the church. Their purpose is to provide for the multitude of practical duties of caring for the flock. Deacons are to give their primary attention toward caring for the congregation’s physical welfare. Deacons have the honor of modeling, for the local church and the lost world, God’s compassion, kindness, mercy, and love. As the church compassionately cares for people’s needs, the world sees a visible display of Christ’s love, which will draw some people to the Savior. Deacons are to be an example of commitment, unity, and harmony in their service.
Deacons: Steve Banton, Danny Bullock, Randy Carpenter, Gary Christenson, Steven DeFriese, Don Denny, Gerry Eswine, Andy Fleming, Don Gray, Jim Hall, Roger Joseph, Vince Knipp, Kevin Legenzoff, Louis Miller, Bryan Parker, Bill Peters, Jim Porterfield, Mike Rhoads, Bryan Rogers, Harrison Saldaña, John Shelden, Tony Vermillion, Henry Viola, Dick Weeks, and Jeff West.
