Elders provide spiritual oversight, teach, shepherd, seek collective wisdom, and act as stewards of the church’s financial resources. Elders are volunteers called by God and affirmed by the church family. These men serve in three-year terms. Our currently serving elders are:

Casey Drane
Gary Hinton
Kenny Saltsman
Matt Towell
Ed Snyder

Mark Hinton
Chris Gardner

Deacons are the super-servants of the church. While all Christians are called to serve, deacons are appointed to serve with a greater level of accountability. Deacons are men with unique talents; they are appointed to accomplish important ministry objectives determined by the church leadership.
