Our Team

Elders

The overall ministry at Clear Creek Church is directed by a team of Elders.

In Scripture, the Elders are responsible for the spiritual and shepherding tasks of the congregation (I Timothy 3:1-7; I Peter 5:1-3).
They are under-shepherds to the Chief Shepherd Jesus, Who is the Head of the His body, the church (Ephesians 5:23; Colossians 1:18).

The  Elders of Clear Creek seek to support and encourage the mission and vision of the congregation through
teaching, preaching, counseling, leading, directing, and protecting the spiritual health of our church family.
