Believers who invest their hearts, time, families, and finances in the building of a local church deserve to have confidence in church leadership. People are looking for leaders who conduct themselves with integrity and respect when making decisions that affect their lives.
1. WE ARE GUIDED BY PASTORS.
The Pastoral staff team is led by the Senior Pastor. This team oversees the day-to-day ministry and operations of the church. These staff pastors serve the congregation and are responsible for the development of the spiritual life of the church. The Senior Pastor Leadership Team members serve as Staff Elders.
The Create Church Senior Pastor Leadership Team members are:
• Ryan Binkley
• Ellie Binkley
• Jay Hellwig
• Paul Blake
• Dennis Steeger
2. WE ARE PROTECTED BY TRUSTEES.
The Trustees are seven members of the congregation who oversee the finances and direct the provision of the facilities needed by the church. They provide counsel to the Senior Pastor Leadership team regarding the major financial commitments of the church. The Trustees serve as Non-staff Elders.
3. WE ARE STRENGTHENED BY OVERSEERS.
The Overseers are five pastors of respected congregations and ministries who love Create Church and are willing to provide spiritual protection to the church. They may be called in to help in accountability matters relating to the Senior Pastor if requested by the Pastors or Trustees. The Overseers serve as Apostolic Elders.
The Overseers for Create Church are:
• Pastor Dennis Rouse – Victory World Church (Atlanta, GA)
• Pastor Gordon Banks – Overcomer Convenant Church (Auburn, WA)
