Board of Elders
Our elected board of elders meets on a monthly basis to plan and discuss how we can increasingly become a faith community where heaven and earth collide. The board also serve to encourage and care for our pastoral staff.

Wes is a born and bred North Carolinian and has called Ekklesia home for the past five years. When he and his wife Laura moved to Raleigh they searched for a new church for over a year and decided on Ekklesia because it was a place where they felt a strong sense of community and service as well as a place that was welcoming and accepting of all people. Wes works as an Assistant Attorney General at the North Carolina Department of Justice and when he is not working volunteers with Ekklesia’s Connekkt Youth Ministry and fosters dogs.Wes Saunders
