Our Advisory Board (which is comprised of a minimum of three church members) exists in order to provide counsel to our pastors. Each member on the Board is chosen by the pastors and must be a member conversant with our Statement of Basic Beliefs. Members of the Advisory Board serve one-year terms, although the pastors may ask specific members to stay on longer in order to provide continuity.
