Introducing Our Management Team

Over recent months the elders at LGCC have spent much time considering the leadership structure of the church. We are always looking for ways to empower and release leaders within the church so we can fulfil much more in our Kingdom mission. During our considerations we looked at the role of eldership asking tough questions and looking at our biblical responsibilities.

In response to these times in prayer and thought we believed we need to introduce a second tier of leadership, which would support the eldership and during our Vision and Values Sunday we introduced the LGCC Management Team (Deacons). This team is made up of people who we believe have leadership gifting that will serve the life of the church well. We also see this team as an opportunity to release and empower young men and women into leadership.

We wanted you to get to know this team, so please take some time to familairise yourself with them and if you don’t know them, why not take some time to introduce yourself. They would love to meet you. Please pray for this team as we step into a new season, I know they are going to be an immeasurable source of help, knowledge and wisdom to us.
