Elders

We believe the highest level of servant leadership in the church resides in the office of eldership. These men are qualified according to Biblical standards (1Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9), set apart by the Holy Spirit (Acts 20:28), and called to serve the church through shepherding and oversight. We consider this team to be the servant leaders of Radiant City Church. Cliff and Cameron are the founding elders of Radiant City and are called to model humility, mutual submission, and gospel partnership to the congregation.

He is married to Brittney and they have two sons named Knox and Nash. On his day off you can find him hanging with his family, inshore fishing, or logging miles on foot or by bike.

DEACONS

We believe that office of deacon is of paramount importance in the life of the church. If Elders “serve the church by leading,” then Deacons “lead in the church by serving.” These men and women meet the Biblical qualifications found in 1 Timothy 3:8-13. Our Deacons serve the congregation by taking care of the physical and logistical needs of the church so that the Elders may focus on their primary calling.

STAFF TEAM

The Elders of Radiant City are called to set the direction &  vision for the church. The staff then, similar to the deacons, are called to help practically carry out that vision & direction. The primary calling for staff is to equip the saints for the work of ministry (Ephesians 4:12). We believe staff personnel are those called to vocational ministry for the equipping of the church or their development for future ministry.
