Leadership

Christian leaders are to serve those they lead.

The perfect demonstration of this was Jesus who gave up His very life for His followers. At Creekside we seek to follow His example. Our leadership exists to serve the church by humbly putting others in the congregation above themselves in hopes that all will live out their unique calling to glorify God.
