OUR ELDERS & DEACONS
Leadership at Delaware Grace includes our staff, our elders, and our deacons.
Elders - Our congregation votes to approve volunteer leaders to join our Elder Board at Delaware Grace. In accordance with two New Testament passages on church leadership (1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1), Elders in the church must be men of godly character who are called to serve as overseers in a local church. At Delaware Grace, our Elders serve to work with big picture issues such as staffing, stewardship, theology, building & grounds, and missions.
Currently, our Elder Board includes Dave Pacheco, Jamie Kridler, Matt Kuchers, Dave Lang, Guy Williams, and Jim Perry. We are grateful for these willing and capable leaders who serve faithfully at Delaware Grace!
Deacons – Deacons are chosen by our church family to serve as leaders in the key ministries of Baptisms, Communions, and other special church family events. In accordance with New Testament teachings on deacons (“servant-helpers”), Deacons in our church must be men and women of godly reputation who can serve in public ways in a local church.
Currently, our Deacons include Dave & Emily Andrews, Ben & Emily Steele, Dwayne & Joy Petko, and Justin & Amanda Mack. Thanks to these men and women for their hearts for Christ and willingness to serve at Delaware Grace!
