Elders & Staff

GBC is led by a plurality of elders, but ultimately, Jesus Christ is the head of His church (Ephesians 5:23; Colossians 1:18). Elders seek to faithfully shepherd and oversee His people (i.e. 1 Peter 5:1-4). The elders use a handbook to provide a framework for elder ministry that fosters unity in thought and practice among the team. The handbook is designed to uphold the authority of Scripture (2 Timothy 3:16-17) by articulating clear biblical statements on eldership, while relying on biblical wisdom and principles for matters of eldership where there are no explicit biblical directives.

GBC also has a team of deacons who, under the direction and oversight of the elders, faithfully seek to attend to the needs of the church. The deacons also use a handbook to provide a framework for deacon ministry.
