Elders & Staff

GBC is led by a plurality of elders, but ultimately, Jesus Christ is the head of His church. Elders seek to faithfully shepherd and oversee His people. 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 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.
