Leaders Past & Present
Early in the church's history, it was felt that there was a need for a plurality of leaders to guide the fellowship. Since the subject of Eldership was being studied by the leading men in the fellowship, 'provisional leaders' were first appointed. These were Chris Duval, Rawle Tyson, Joseph Campbell, Douglas Simpson, and Fitz-Maurice Linton.
Elders are the primary leaders of the church with responsibility for the pastoral care of the church. They are assisted by Deacons whose primary role centers on the material needs of the church.
The first appointees as Elders were Joseph Campbell (1982-93) and Gary Marr (1982-87) and the first deacons were Carl Evans (1982-95) and Larry Alexander (1982-85).
Subsequently, the following persons were appointed as Elders. The elders are referred to as Pastors.
Bruce Fletcher (1984-2015); Michael 'Kov' Nicholson (1985-89); Rawle Tyson (1989-present); Harry Walcott (1994-present); Michael Anderson (1998-2000); Bruce Polson and Michael McAnuff-Jones (2006-present).
