Leadership

While God and the Bible are the ultimate authority for East 40 Church of Christ, there is a leadership structure to keep the day-to-day operations and ministry of the church moving forward in the right direction.


The leadership of East 40 has a few integral parts. East 40 Church of Christ is first and foremost an elder-led church. The elders provide oversight, vision, and guidance to the corporate side of the church and most importantly the spiritual side of the church.


Our church staff then provides the leadership and day-to-day decision making during the week. 


At the end of the day, the East 40 leadership hopes that together we can do work that reflects God and brings the members and attendees that much closer to the Jesus.
