our elder team

Here at Northlake Church, our Elders are the main spiritual and directional leaders for our church. The role of the Elders is to provide spiritual leadership, to care for the church, and to ensure biblically-sound doctrine. They meet regularly for prayer, ministry assessment, vision casting and accountability. We currently have a board of 7 Elders - 5 lay Elders and 2 staff Elders.  Please pray for them as they lead and shepherd our church family.


To contact our board, please feel free to email us.
