Elders love to walk alongside others in discipleship and prayer. At Crestview Church, elders are called by God to ‘bear up God’s people in their pain and weakness and celebrate their joys with them’ in being a Christlike example and support for others through actions and through words.’ Elders are also a primary support to the pastor. Elders are to engage in loving people well with love, compassion, and encouraging followers of Jesus to walk in the ways of Jesus.

We have five elders including the pastor, who seek to champion these things for our people: Ruth Niebur: council president, Julie Huffaker: council vice president, Roger Tinklenberg, Gayle Yeo and Pastor Mark.

To contact any of the elders, email us here at the Crestview office and indicate elder in the subject line.
