Believers who invest their time, talent, treasure, and families, in the building of a local church deserve to have confidence in church leadership. People are looking for leaders who conduct themselves with integrity and respect when making decisions that affect their lives.
Our church government is made up of Leaders:
Guided by STAFF
The ministry staff team is led by the Lead Pastor. This team oversees the day-to-day ministry and operations of the church. These staff leaders serve the congregation and are responsible for the development of the spiritual life of the church.
Guarded by THE LEAD TEAM
The Lead Team functions primarily as discerners and shepherds and as such serve as the conscience and guardians of the church. Acts 20:28 states, “Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which he purchased with his own blood.” The Lead Team guards the vision of the organization, the resources of the organization, and the organization’s statement of faith. No single team member has the authority of the entire Lead Team.
Strengthened by PRESBYTERS
The Presbyters are pastors of respected congregations and ministries who love Destination Church and its pastors and are willing to provide spiritual protection to the church. They may be called in to help in accountability matters relating to the Lead Pastor and staff if requested to do so by the Lead Team. The Presbyters serve as an Apostolic Team.
