The character and effectiveness of any church is directly related to the quality of its leadership. That’s why Scripture stresses the importance of godly overseers and delineates specific standards for evaluating those who would serve in that position. At SGBC our leadership comprises of Elders and Deacons, men who have been tested and proven faithful, and we thank the Lord for the qualified, able men who provide pastoral and administrative oversight to our church family.
