Called and Equipped
Jesus is our Shepherd-King and the people in this congregation belong to him. He calls and equips different people from among his congregation to help lead his church. That happens through teams of elders and deacons, volunteer leaders, pastors and paid staff.
Church Council: a team comprised of elders, deacons, and the Sr. Pastor who oversee the day to day and long-term life of Pleasant Street. They discern together who God wants us to be, and how we can live Jesus’ life in our community.
Elders: men and women who serve Jesus by caring for and guiding the life of our congregation. They nurture our faith in Jesus through worship, they care for us when we are wounded, they celebrate the good things that God is doing in our lives. They are best described as shepherds.
Deacons: women and men who serve Jesus by empowering care and showing mercy. They provide confidential help for people in need – whether the needs are social, emotional, physical, financial, or spiritual – and whether the people are part of our congregation, our community, or across the world. Deacons help us to notice gifts that God has given to us and they lead us into how to use them for the needs of our community.
In addition there are a number of ministry teams that help steward, develop, and implement ministry at Pleasant street.
