Church is family - so we all have a part to play and a say in what happens. But God has also given leaders to local churches to act as 'shepherds' of his people. The Bible word for these shepherd leaders is 'Elders'. Emmanuel is led by a team of one part time and one full-time elder. To support the Elders we also have others on the leadership team. The Bible word for these is 'Deacon'. We currently have two Deacons in place. The total leadership is made ou of these four people.
