Leadership of the church belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ and flows to us through the Holy Spirit. On a human level three groups of people direct the ministries of DRCC. Those three leadership teams are:

  1. The Elders are members of the body who provide general watch care and oversight. They continually evaluate the teaching ministry of the church and review major ministry decisions and strategic initiatives. They use their wisdom, discernment and shepherding gifts to ensure the church remains on a true course biblically. Scripture indicates that the ultimate decision-making authority in the church rests with the Elders.
  2. The Board of Trustees are members of the church elected by the congregation to oversee the legal and financial aspects of the ministry and matters pertaining to the building, facilities, and staff employment. They all have some marketplace expertise which they use to serve the congregation.
  3. The Staff directs the day-to-day affairs of the ministries of the church. They are paid so that they can devote the best hours of their day to building ministries. The management team—a sub-grouping of senior staff—directs the staff as a whole.

The Staff directs the ministries of the church; these ministries are supported by the policies and financial allocation determined by the Trustees; and all the activities of the church are carried out under the watch care and supervision of the Elders.

What makes DRCC work smoothly is the humble, servant-like spirit of these groups of people. Leaders at all levels do not see it as their role to “lord it over” those in their charge, but desire to serve the body with their gifts and to build the Kingdom rather than an “empire.” Members of the church sense this servant hood in action and likewise esteem those in leadership. This spirit of cooperation and appreciation is one of the remarkable features of the ministry of DRCC and is one of God’s greatest blessings to our body. It is a fragile gift, however, and any person desiring to become a participating member should value and protect it.


We belong to Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. And He invites us to belong to a community of faith. Whether a lifetime Christian, a new believer or just curious about the faith, you are welcome here at Damascus Road Community Church. Understand what we believe, who makes up our leadership team and the pathway to membership.


In a larger church it can be a challenge to feel personally connected. Allow us to help you. Whether searching for calendar information, a larger event in which to get a better taste of DRCC, a smaller group to be a part of, or personal care for the struggles and celebrations of life… this is a good place to start.


Grow in biblical knowledge and spiritual wisdom. Know what you believe and how to apply it to your everyday life. Sink deep roots into God’s Word through our ministries, classes or sermon library resources, and be better equipped to give an answer for your faith, discern truth and weather the storms of life.


As Christ gave his life for us, so also we give back to our local community of faith a portion of our time, talent and treasure. In so doing we release the grip of selfishness and idolatry in our lives. And our brothers and sisters receive the encouragement they need to carry on.


Beyond our home, school and workplace, Damascus Road Community Church offers opportunities to go near and far in sharing the Good News of Christ through tangible acts of service. Our missions’ teams partner with established churches and pastors to spread the Gospel, nurture long-term relationships and build sustainable solutions to address needs for today and into the future.
