Church Leadership Structure

The elders and deacons make up the church council which is the governing body of our congregation. They are responsible for overseeing worship, and ministry in the congregation. Additionally, our church is a part of a Classis which is a regional body to which our church is accountable. Finally, as a member of the Christian Reformed denomination, our Synod is a bi-national gathering that meets once a year. The Synod provides leadership and governance to all churches in the Christian Reformed Church.
