Women’s Leadership Team

The Women’s Leadership Team (WLT) provides help to the deacons and sensitive wisdom for the elders in matters of ministry. The godly maturity, gospel wisdom, and gifts of these women are recognized by our church as God-given leadership for service in the body of Christ. This team meets for discussion and prayer, and serves our church as a “point-group” for all matters of women’s care and ministry. You can learn more about our women’s ministry here.
