ECC is an elder-led congregation. We believe that the Bible teaches that every church is to be led by a team of biblically qualified shepherds called ‘elders’ or ‘pastors.’ This team of men oversees and cares for the congregation as a whole.
Some of our elders are employed by the church, though most work in a regular job. All elders meet the qualifications of 1 Timothy 3:1–7 and Titus 1:6–9, and they endeavor to lead the church through example, preaching, teaching, discipling and counseling. They meet regularly for shepherding, prayer, and spiritual oversight on matters concerning the church.

Deacons & Staff
ECC’s deacons and staff team facilitate ministry in the life of the church through leadership and service in several areas of practical administration. Through their gifts of administrative leadership, the deacons help the church function smoothly and help the elders focus their energy on prayer, spiritual oversight, and shepherding.
