Leadership

Submitted to Jesus’ authority, we practice the Brethren in Christ model of bishop, senior pastor, congregational council, governing board, staff and lay leaders. As a body of leaders and members, we listen attentively to the Holy Spirit, Scripture, and one another as we seek to follow Jesus.
 

Pastoral Staff

The pastoral team provides spiritual leadership, advancing the mission, vision, and core values of DBIC, teaching people to love and obey Jesus, calling people to Spirit-filled lives, and equipping believers to engage in works of service.
