Community Church Leadership
Community Church is guided by elders, pastors, directors and staff leaders who provide overall direction and watch over the spiritual needs of the church. Our pastors provide sound, practical, biblical teaching at each worship service. They are equipped to share God's love within the church and in our local community. Community Church is blessed to have a leadership team who are truly dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His will.
Senior Pastor & Elder
