The Gospel is the glorious message that removes our sin and allows us to worship Go...

Elder Affirmation

180115 Blog Post- Elders.001

For the first time since Pastor Blake joined us in 2015, we're excited to add new elders to our elder team. We don't think you'll be surprised by any of the three. In fact, you might be caught off guard that they aren't already official elders. We've been committed to plural elder leadership from the beginning of our church.

It points to the divine imagination and screams the power of the divine hand. No man could write this plot and if he did, no man could expedite what he had written.
