Our Team

At Southbrook, we believe that “every member is a minister”, in the sense that God has uniquely called and equipped every Christ-follower to play a valuable role in fulfilling his purposes, both inside and outside the church.  We also believe that some are called to specific lay leadership and vocational ministry roles.  Therefore, our gifted team of elders, pastors, directors, and ministry assistants plays an important part in accomplishing the mission God has given us.

Our elders seek to fulfill their biblical function by focusing on the following: protecting ministry direction, provide oversight to operational budget, as well as financial accountability, ensure ministry alignment and implementation, protect the integrity of the church (theological, relational, philosophical), and assess overall leadership effectiveness through accountability. This specific focus allows our elders to lovingly shepherd our church into the future.
