Leadership

Meet the Team

One important thing to know about any organization is how it's lead. At Arise, we're all following Jesus. But we also have some practical leadership roles.


Elders are men and women elected from the congregation to provide the overall oversight and spiritual leadership of the church. The staff equip the saints for the work of ministry, men and women who serve as vocational workers in the church. Deacons are men and women who serve in the church by leading ministries or small groups. And members are those who've committed to Arise as their church home and are active in the faith and work of our community.
