Karis is led by a plurality of elders (or pastors) who are gifted in leading and teaching, biblically qualified (1 Tim. 3 and Titus 1) in character, and called by God. Our elders serve the church by leading the church, focusing on preaching, prayer and the ministry of the word (Acts 6). Christ is the head of Karis, but biblically, He entrusts His church to the leadership of a faithful, committed few.




Karis has deacons who are set apart by the Spirit and are biblically qualified (1 Tim. 3), as well. Our deacons serve the church by assisting the elders, leading various ministries within the church family.
