We believe that God has equipped every believer with gifts tailored to serve God's purposes in his Church; among those gifts are leadership and service.
We believe in a team approach to leadership, in which both paid staff and volunteers join together to accomplish the work and ministry of the church. Leadership is both a privilege and a responsibility. We are intentional about identifying, encouraging, and nurturing men and women regardless of age in the effective use of their gifts in God's Kingdom.
The Foundations Team (FT) — Church members elect 6-8 men and women to work with the pastor, setting priorities for the church and monitoring the church's spiritual health and vitality. The FT takes its vision from the New Testament's model for church elders.
The following are members of the Foundations Team: David Vonk (chair), Stephanie Petersen (vice-chair), Betty Moyer (secretary), Sierra Norris, Brenda Heddles and David DeGroot. Pastor David Hillis serves as an ex-officio member of the FT.
The Operations Team (OT) — The OT is composed of 6-8 members, elected by the church, who are responsible to oversee church operations, making certain that the physical, logistical and technical needs of the church body, ministry teams, and church staff are adequately provided for. The OT takes its vision from the New Testament's model for church deacons.
The following are members of the Operations Team: Ed Heiden (chair), Val Lloyd (vice-chair), Amy Rollins (secretary), Kirk Johnston, Frank Hosford, Mark Fleming, Robert Hammond, and Heidi Cowell. The church treasurer (Keith Ritzmann) and church administrator (Sandie Ramm) serve as ex-officio members of the OT.
