Our Staff & Lay Leadership

Although our staff and lay leadership come from diverse backgrounds and experience, they have one thing in common. Each is committed to sharing with as many people as possible that " God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life." (John 3:16)
