Our Leadership

In the United Church of Christ, we believe in the ‘priesthood of all believers’. This goes back to Martin Luther who, in 1520, introduced the revolutionary idea that all Christians can participate equally in the life and ministry of the Church. We believe that a strong laity is essential for a strong church and work to develop the talents of all our members. While we do ‘set aside’ certain persons by ordination to recognize their special gifts for ministry, we encourage all of our members and friends to be active and responsible for our shared ministry.
