Church Leadership Team
As an advisory team to the Elder board our constitution calls for a Church Leadership Team. This is a group of people who are recognized by the congregation as spiritually mature individuals who will act as advisors to the elders as well as a go between for the people and the leaders and staff of the church. The Church Leadership Team (CLT) meets on a monthly basis to be appraised by the elders on the condition of ministry through the staff, and in the church, as well as to bring any concerns they might be aware of to the attention of the elders. Each member of the CLT has the responsibility of oversight of various ministry teams.
