ELDER ADVISORY BOARD

This group of men function as an external group of pastors and ministry leaders who provide coaching, wise counsel, and accountability for the Lead Pastor of Redemption Church. We are grateful for the willingness of these men to invest their wisdom, experience, and love for the church to help us grow Redemption Church in this season of ministry. As our young church matures, we will seek, by God’s grace, to develop humble servants to lead and to love our church as elders in the years ahead.
