  • I am exploring various churches in the area as I hope to be moving to your area next spring or fall. There is only the senior pastor listed under leadership. Is there a session or leadership council? How are you governed? Who holds leadership accountable!? Thanks much!


    • Hi Brenda, thank you for checking us out….and thank you for asking some great questions.
      We are congregationally led, which means we make decisions for our church as a church – the leadership does not make those alone.
      Alongside the Pastor is a team of Deacons. Does this start to answer your questions? Please feel free to ask more – we are glad you are investigating our church. Have you checked out our doctrinal statement and read through/listened to the sermons? Please feel free to reach out some more with any questions you have. Blessings! -EFC
