Crosstimbers is led by a Leadership Team consisting of elders and deacons working together with staff and other personnel to serve the Lord in a spirit of unity and to help his people be transformed by the power of God’s Holy Spirit.
Our elders (or shepherds/pastors) provide the spiritual oversight and direction for the church by teaching, mentoring, and correcting when necessary. We currently have four elders. Acts 20:17-31; 1 Timothy 3:1-10; Titus 1:5-9
Our deacons function as our hands and feet, serving in various capacities to carry out the many responsibilities of the church. These men and women often oversee groups of people serving in specific areas of ministry. 1 Tim 3:8-13
