As the search team has met, the importance of the lead pastor role has been foremost in our minds. In addition, we have been reminded of the principles from 1 Corinthians 12 — Every single one of us bring different skills and gifts, but together we are one body. Each of us, by the power of the Holy Spirit, plays a vital role in the working of our whole body. In light of that, we wanted to share some highlights of the different roles within our church body.
