Leadership & Staff

At August Gate Church, elders, deacons, and ministry team leaders seek to lead our people as they look to Jesus, the Senior Pastor of our church (Ephesians 4:15, 1 Peter 5:4). An elder is a pastor who shepherds through protecting, teaching, leading, managing and caring for the practical need's of Jesus' people (1 Peter 5:1a, 2a). Deacons and ministry team leaders are lead servants in the church who assist the pastors in the tasks of leadership, management and care. For us, the role of a deacon lends itself toward assisting pastors in caring for people and therefore requires biblical qualifications that are nearly identical to the elders, minus teaching and preaching (1 Timothy 3:8-13). The role ministry team leaders play is primarily focused on managing systems and leading people who are serving within those systems.

At August Gate Church we encourage and challenge all of our members to continue to grow to become good (competency), godly (character) and gospel-centered (Christ-focus) leaders who are using their God-given gifts for the glory of God, the joy of the church, and His/our mission to the world.
