We believe the New Testament teaches that Elders are to serve as the primary spiritual shepherds of the local church. Thus, members of our congregation elect Elders to serve in two-year terms.  Rick and Carl started their terms in 2023; Joe, Craig, and Joshua in 2022.

Administration Team

The Administration Team takes care of behind the scenes work, that way Elders can focus on their primary role of shepherding the congregation. The Administration Team helps assemble PVCC’s yearly budget, policies, and other practical concerns.
