The pastor and other elders are the highest level of servant leadership in the church. As undershepherds, elders serve with the lead pastor to oversee both the temporal and spiritual affairs of the local church in order to accomplish Christ’s mission. After meeting the basic Biblical qualifications found in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:6-9, this team meets regularly for prayers, interview prospective members, and exercise church discipline as needed according to the Uniform Policy for Discipline, Restoration, and Appeal found in Section E8 of the C&MA Manual.
The Advisory Committee (ADCOM) team serves our faith family in an advisory role with the Lead Pastor as we seek to meet conditions for full accreditation as a church with the Mid-Atlantic District. They are appointed by the District Superintendent on an annual basis.
