CHURCH LEADERSHIP

FFC organizes our leadership as biblically as we can. We look to the scriptures for what qualifies someone to lead and follow Jesus' example of "servant leadership". We also believe God will equip who He calls and instead of just filling a position; we shape our ministries around the people who have been sent to us.
