The Leadership of Elders

The elders, also called pastors in the New Testament, are to lead the church by teaching and shepherding the congregation.  Leaders bear a burden of giving account to God, while the congregation bears the burden of recognizing and submitting to the biblical authority of the pastors/elders.

 

Adam Godshall

Teaching Pastor, Elder

Pastor Adam Godshall grew up in Bucks County, PA and graduated from college in 1994 with a degree in Bible.  He went on to complete the degree of Master of Divinity in 1999.  Adam has served in various ministry capacities including: assistant pastor working with youth and administration, program director for a Christian camp, and volunteer service in the growing years of a church-planting effort.
 
In January of 2001, Adam married Kari Williams.  Kari serves the church as a pianist, but serves most uniquely and importantly as the wife of Adam.  God has blessed their family with five daughters and a son – Jill, Claire, Greta, Kate, Jenna and Evan.
 
The goal of Adam's ministry is to utilize Bible preaching to bring about Biblical thinking for godly living.

The service of deacons

The word “deacon” means servant, reminding us that the church is to be served by deacons.  While all Christians are called to serve one another, the role of deacon is a key serving role filled by qualified men.  To be a deacon is to humbly accept the lofty privilege of lowly service.
