Leadership for Faith is provided by our Consistory; made up of 3 elders, 3 deacons, and the pastors. Elders have responsibility for the spiritual needs of the congregation, Deacons have responsibility for the physical needs of the congregation, and the Consistory as a whole gives overall leadership and direction for our ministry and life together. Elders and deacons are elected to 3-year terms; we stand in a faith tradition which calls and ordains women, as well as men, to all offices of church leadership.
Current Elders: Dominick Castaldo, Daniel Luczak (V.P.), Ranee Sudkamp
Current Deacons: Sandy Johnson, Christine Ofloy (Clerk), Randy Vokral
