Our Elder Team

Matt Carlson, Steve Burdette, and Eric Douglas

Grace & Peace is part of the Presbyterian tradition. We believe that churches are like people, they need to be in deep community with each other, and they need accountability in their lives in order to be healthy. To foster this community and accountability we are connected with other churches in our region (called a Presbytery). On the local level each church is cared for by a dedicated group of local leaders (called elders). The qualifications for an elder can be found in 1 Timothy 3:1-6, and Titus 1:5-9.
