Church Leadership

Our church board is comprised of Elders and Deacons that oversee the spiritual, physical and administrative management of the church. This team of trusted individuals is elected by the congregation and works with the Pastor to ensure the mission of the church is carried out. The current church board members are:



Mark Smeltzer – Pastor
