Youth Ministry Team Leader
Our Elders are responsible for the health and oversight of The Vine. God has deputized them with the responsibilities to know, feed, care for and protect His people. Each elder is called to find his strength and encouragement by constantly centering his heart on the Gospel of Jesus. He has given the elder prayer and ministry of the Word of God as primary means to apply the gospel. An elder is, first and foremost, a servant-leader in our midst. As Christ came to serve and not be served, our elders should model and lead our body with that same heart and attitude.
