Jesus Christ gives pastors and elders to His church to lead us (Ephesians 4:11-16). We are very thankful for the men Jesus Christ has given to us at Peninsula Reformed Presbyterian Church.
As a mission work, we are particularly grateful for the men God has provided from around the regional church to help lead us. We also look forward to the day when Jesus will provide us with elders from our local congregation.
