Lay Leadership

First Baptist is led by a group of lay leaders and operated by a staff of people paid and unpaid. These leaders, known as servant leaders, deacons or simply leadership team are responsible for overall direction and governance. They oversee the pastoral staff, approve and monitor budgets, solve problems as they arise and most importantly, are responsible for the vision and direction of our church and its mission and values. This group is selected from members of the church, and based on spiritual and personal maturity, along with special gifts or skills needed by the team.Obviously, given our diverse nature, leadership teams arise from each individual fellowship to address needs specific to that group.


If you wish to contact any member of a leadership team with a question or comment, or want to address the diaconate at one of their meetings, please e-mail or call us at the office.
