Leadership of the Eastside Church of Christ
For any group or organization good leadership is crucial for growth and success – this equally applies to the Lord’s church. Christ is the overall head of the church, but God has also seen fit to provide leaders for each congregation. In Scripture they are referred to as elders, shepherds, overseers. (Acts 14:23; Titus1:5; 1 Timothy 3:1; 1 Peter 5:1-2; Hebrews 13:17)
Spiritual Shepherds (Elders)
Recently the Eastside church of Christ appointed two elders: Ron Johnson and Gary Coles. It is our hope and prayer God will bless these new shepherds as they labor with the congregation, and their leadership will ultimately glorify our God and savior Jesus Christ.
Gary Coles also serves as the evangelist (preacher) of the Eastside church of Christ. He has been with the congregation for a little over a year and is responsible for the bulk of teaching and preaching. All his sermons are available on the sermon page of our website.
