Elders


The elders in our church are the governing body of the community. They are responsible to first and foremost be leaders to those whom they are serving, witnessing to the community through their own acts of faith. They serve as leaders on various committees within our community. These committees support the life and ministry of PCN. Anyone can serve on these committees and we invite people to get involved.
