Elected Leaders

Staff, Elders and Deacons

We ordained our first elders and deacons December 2012. 

Jesus said, “I did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give my life as a ransom for many.” (Mk 10:45)

The Biblical model of leadership is probably best characterized in the phrase "servant leader."  Elders and deacons are elected by the church to model servant leadership to the congregation. We ordain our elders and deacons to come alonside our leaders (pastors, Parish leaders, group leaders, Ministry Team leaders, and others) and shoulder the responsibilities of oversight, care, and "equipping God's people for works of service" (Eph 4).

Please direct questions, needs, and concerns to deacons@christchurcheastbay.org or contact the following elders or deacons on the online community network.

Elders

Those elected by the members to be elders at Christ Church serve in the following ways:

  • Protect and promote the mission of Christ Church.
  • Represent the interests of the congregation to the pastors.
  • Serve as board members of the organization.
  • Conduct membership interviews and exit interviews.
