Board of Elders

Our elected board of elders meets on a monthly basis to work in partnership with our pastors to help lead and guide our church.

This month (November 2019), three board members are at the end of their term, and will be replaced by newly elected members.

The list of names below represents the most-nominated persons in our church community who also allowed their names to stand for election. In alphabetical order by first name, here are the 6 nominees. Please select THREE. For gender equity, of the 5 on the board at least 2 must be female and 2 must be male. To stay within our 3-2 gender equity ratio, at least two of the three new board members must be male. The third nominee can be either male or female.

She loves reading, spending time outside, and DIY projects.

If you’ve met Colby and Amy and their kids, you already know how awesome they are. Depending on the time of year, they are busy coaching and driving their kids all of over Raleigh for soccer, baseball, basketball and more. They love their kids and they love their church home dearly.

Chris and his wife Crystal moved to Raleigh in 2015. They have two very loving and rambunctious little boys, Cassius ‘Cash’ (b.2015) and Charleston ‘Charlie’ (b.2017). Chris works as a fundraiser for NC State University. When Chris was asked, “how do you spend your free time when not busy with your beautiful family?” His response, “What time? My kids are thee and one!”
