Three Boards govern first Christian: Elder Board (spiritual), Trustee Board (finance/facilities), and the Personnel Board (human resources/legal). The Staff are to implement the Strategy under the leadership of the Elder Board. (To read more about our governance, click here.)
Elders are the spiritual shepherds of the church. The Elder Board is responsible for making certain the Mission and Strategy of First Christian is being accomplished in the various ministries. An Elder must be a baptized disciple of Jesus, and meet the qualifications (both skills and character traits) outlined in the New Testament (e.g., see Acts 20:17; 28-31; 1 Timothy 3:2–7; 5:17; Titus 1:6–9; 1 Peter 5:1-2; James 5:14). We praise God for the service of our Elders! In addition to the Senior Pastor, here is the current slate of Elders at FCC. Please commit to praying for them.
