Meet our servant leaders.
Leading like Jesus.
Jesus chose to set aside His crown in heaven for a crown of thorns.
He set Himself up for sacrifice in order to walk among us, form lasting, impactful relationships,
and model servant leadership - in washing His disciples' feet, in suffering death on the cross for us.
Our goal is to lead this local church as Jesus leads His global church:
Forming relationships, serving with love and humility, and all to God's glory.
