Meet Our Leadership

PASTORS

The Bible teaches that churches are to be led and cared for by qualified pastors. You can read about what qualifies a man to become a pastor in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9. Our pastors are Alex Kloosterman, Rylan Auger, and Ben Inglis. They exercise spiritual oversight and provide pastoral care to our congregation.
