Wellsboro Bible Church is elder led and congregationally affirmed

 

Our elders are entrusted by God and our congregation to lead, protect, and care for the members and ministry of WBC.

 

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

Deacons free up the elders and

serve the congregation

 

Each of our 5 deacons fills a specific role to help meet the needs of our ministry.

 
They are such excellent servants, that it’s hard to get a picture of them!
