Leadership is best seen in service, as Jesus exclaimed ( Mark 10:44 ), "if you want to be great, learn to be a servant to all." He went on to say, "for the Son of man came not to be served but to serve, and give His life a ransom for many." That is part of the heart of our leadership; we have four elders who meet and share a meeting of the minds for GOD'S people. There are those serving as deacons, and because we are a coastal community, some of our strangest contributors come from out of town. Leaders, who aspire to such, are approached according to Biblical criteria, are assigned and approved by the body, as opposed to election or popular opinion. It's a running experiment, of sorts, but it works out here, while we seek to maintain continuity of ministry in Ocean Park.
