Church Leadership

Church Leadership

Hope Community Church is currently led by four Elders.

 Ed Sturgis

  John DiGregorio

  Tim Parker

  Joe Mather

They are supported by a group of Ministry Team Leaders.

The Elders

Elders are appointed, in accordance with scripture, from amongst the men in the fellowship who based on their personal confession of faith and who demonstrate the character and qualities outlined in passages such as 1 Timothy ch 3 v 1 – 7 and Titus ch 1 v 6 – 9.

What do elders do?

The elders’ primary role is to provide spiritual oversight to the church. This function is discharged specifically through the provision of pastoral care, guidance, teaching, and discernment of God’s will for the church. Each Elder has specific focus areas that they are responsible for within the Church

The model, as demonstrated by the Lord Jesus and emphasised by scripture, is that of servant leadership.
