Some Church's have Elders, this Church does not. Yes, we do have a Church Council that runs the "business" side of the Church. Please note, Deacon's at Faith do preach (but a sermon written by pastor); they do not consecrate the elements of the Eucharist (they may serve the Eucharist under Pastor's lead). They assist in so many other ways. This is good, this is Biblical. Please note, they are not elected and serving a term, but asked to step forward for service, and the Church itself in Assembly acclaims and accepts these men to serve until Pastor requires a change.
Deacon Tim Graves serves the Church under Pastor Prentice as needed.
Sub-Deacon David Prentice III serves as needed to support Pastor and Deacon when called upon.
Many members of the congregation step forward to assist the business of the Church. Boards vary and we will provide more details at a later date.
