Church Leadership: Compassionate, Caring, and Committed to Christ
Elders are responsible for the spiritual oversight of the church family. Jesus gave elders to tend his flock as under-shepherds until he returns. These men meet once a month to pray for the church and seek the Lord for spiritual direction for the church.
Deaconesses assist with the care for various needs in the church family. They pray with and mentor women in the church. They also help coordinate various women's ministries.
The leadership team
The Battle Lake Alliance Leadership Team consists of the Senior Pastor, the Elders, and three at-large members: Robb Emerson, Cassie Holo, and Mary Jorud.
The Leadership Team jointly oversees all areas of this local church. The Senior Pastor serves as Chair and an elder is elected as Vice Chairman each year.
The focus of the Leadership Team is administrative, making sure that finances are handled properly, communication is handled within to the various committees, calendar activities are approved, and decisions are made to stay on task. Everyone has a vote and a voice on this team, and each is a valued member.
