Please take a look at the Leadership page on the King’s website, which we have recently updated. It summarises the three key leadership teams of King’s: Elders, Trustees and the Senior Leadership Team. These three teams work closely together to bring oversight, governance and direction to the church.
Our team of Elders, which I lead, meet monthly. We usually concentrate on just two or three major directional, doctrinal issues in the course of a year. Our last two meetings have been predominantly given over to our response as a church to the issue of race and justice.
Our team of Trustees is led by Simon Linley, and also meets monthly. The Trustees are responsible for all financial, legal and employment issues, and they set the parameters for delegated authority to our staff team. I attend this meeting and give a monthly report on key areas of church life.
Our Senior Leadership Team, which I also lead, meets once a week on a Tuesday morning. The focus of this team is to serve the church in implementing our vision and mission. We work closely with our superb, hardworking pastoral and operational staff members.
Finally, we have outside accountability and oversight in place. From our wider Newfrontiers family, David Devenish provides an objective voice and apostolic oversight into our community. We also have other people speaking regularly into the life of King's. For example, Steve and Cindy Nicolson from Evanston Vineyard in Chicago, are trusted friends who have visited King’s many times and have served us over many years.
We highly value your prayers for all those in leadership at King's as we seek to serve God – for His glory and for the advancement of His Kingdom.
