Meet Our Team
Serving Christ Together
Ottawa East is led by a team of people with different backgrounds, experiences and passions. Some of us are paid leaders, and some of us volunteers. We’re honoured to be in the roles we are in, and we have a lot of fun, but our primary focus is to help people take their next step with Jesus.
We currently do not have a Pastor. We will update this page when we have a Pastor installed at the church.
Our Board of Elders
The Board of Elders is comprised of ordained Elders who are called by God and elected by the congregation to serve as spiritual leaders. They provide general oversight for the running of the church and are involved in nurturing members. The Board of Elders works closely with the Pastor and each Elder liaises with at least one department and provides support, input and advice, as needed.
The current objective of the Board of Elders is to serve the congregation. This is done in various ways: coordinating the Wednesday night prayer meetings; visiting the sick; providing communion to the shut-ins; maintaining contact with members; conducting Bible studies; and, assisting the Pastor in following-up with individuals who are interested in learning more about the church.
Our Board of Directors
The church board provides a platform for pastoral staff and church members to come together and make decisions to further the mission of the Ottawa East church. Being a member of such a board is a weighty and honourable task. Our board members, who have been elected by the church board at large, are persons who portray in their personal and corporate life qualities of spirituality, fairness, tact, and good judgment. In addition, our board members are trustees that will operate in the church’s best interest.
Our church board members are legally and morally responsible for all activities of the congregation. It is responsible for nurturing and promoting the vision and mission of the congregation/district. The board is responsible for determining congregational policy, developing the annual budget, and determining the goals of the congregation.
