We believe that Jesus is the head of the church.  He is the Senior Pastor, and we seek to follow His leading.  He is the perfect Prophet, Priest, and King.

Further, we consider every person who chooses Arise as the primary expression of their church family to be staff.  That means that all of us are responsible for making disciples and all of us are missionaries.  It's part of our God-given identity.

However, God also sets aside some of us within the church to serve as elders, and has given us the responsibility of willingly and eagerly pastoring His family.  Listed below are our current elders.
