Brookwood Church - Love God, Love People

Meet Our Team

Advisory Team

Our church structure is designed to be biblical and to build unity.

So let us concentrate on the things which make for harmony, and on the growth of our fellowship together.

Romans 14:19 (Ph)

Our church is led by an Advisory Team, which plans and implements the strategy of our church consistent with our mission, vision, and values.

Trustees are lay persons (non-pastors) who possess spiritual maturity and provide servant leadership in our Church as advisors and counselors. They partner with our pastors to provide direction and oversight for our congregation. They also provide practical/professional experience in areas such as finance, facility construction, human resources, management communications, missions or evangelism. Each year, two trustees will be selected by the Advisory Team and confirmed by vote of the church membership from recommendations submitted by the church body. Each trustee may serve up to three consecutive one-year terms. One year after rotating off of the Advisory Team, a person may be nominated for confirmation to an additional term

Trustees do not serve in the biblical office of deacon, but they are qualified spiritually using the requirements of a deacon. (1 Timothy 3:8-13)
