Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ.

We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

Join us on this journey of growth and service. Together, let's cultivate a community where every believer thrives, and the ministry echoes with the vibrancy of Christ's love. Ready to be part of a community where leadership isn't a position but a divine responsibility? Come, grow with us, and let's serve together as we journey toward the fullness of Christ.
