MEET OUR TEAMS

The Church of the Brethren believes in the priesthood of all believers, meaning that all believers are gifted and equipped to minister in the church. Whether it is in the form of a named position or other opportunities, our goal is to find meaningful ways for everyone to participate and serve, using their God-given gifts and talents.

PASTORAL STAFF

While we believe in the priesthood of all believers, certain people are called out for their gifts in teaching and leadership. We are grateful for the dedication, love, and service provided to us by our licensed and ordained pastor.
