Our Leaders

The heartbeat of our church is to “delight in God and share His grace”. We are thankful to God for those He has given to the Koinos family who are good examples in doing this and lead with joy. Our pastors reflect well the giftedness and calling in 1 Timothy 3:1-7. Other staff members serve in various ways helping insure the family is cared for well. Please contact them as you have need for help in growing in grace.
