City Lights Church is governed by a group of elders who have been nominated by the church, found to meet Biblical qualifications for leaders, and been ordained by the church for the work of preaching, teaching, and shepherding. Our elders share equally the responsibility for the overall policy, control, direction and management of the ministry, operations, and finances of the church.
While some of our elders are employed as full-time staff, a majority are not employed by the church. One of the elders also has the title of Pastor to identify his additional responsibility in the daily oversight of the operations of the church and leadership of the church staff. Elders, overseers, and pastors are synonyms in the New Testament, and all of the elders at City Lights take responsibility for pastoring the members of the church.
