We are led by Pastors Byron and Elaine McKibben and supported by a leadership group who meet regularly for prayer and to discuss the life of the church. Every member of our church family plays an important part in the life and work of the church from the youngest to the oldest. We appreciate and encourage everyone's contribution.
