Our church structure is designed to be biblical and to build unity.

So let us concentrate on the things which make for harmony,
and on the growth of our fellowship together.
   Romans 14:19 (Ph)


Our church is led by an Advisory Team, which plans and implements the strategy of our church consistent with our mission, vision and values (Article VI, Section V of the Brookwood Church Bylaws). The Advisory Team currently consists of seven lead Pastors – Senior Pastor, Executive Pastor, Worship Pastor, Adult Discipleship Pastor, Outreach Pastor, Care Pastor and Family Pastor – and six Trustees.


Trustees are lay persons (non-pastors) who possess spiritual maturity and provide servant leadership in our Church as advisors and counselors. They partner with our pastors to provide direction and oversight for our congregation. They also provide practical/professional experience in areas such as finance, facility construction, human resources, management communications, missions or evangelism. Each year, two trustees will be selected by the Advisory Team and confirmed by vote of the church membership from recommendations submitted by the church body. Each trustee may serve up to three consecutive one-year terms. One year after rotating off of the Advisory Team, a person may be nominated for confirmation to an additional term (Article VI, Section VI of Bylaws).

Trustees do not serve in the biblical office of deacon, but they are qualified spiritually using the requirements of a deacon.  (1 Timothy 3:8-13).

Our pastors serve as elders of our church, directing ministry areas and providing input to the Advisory Team. Three different terms are used in the New Testament to refer to the same church leaders:

To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder...: Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers - not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be... eager to serve... 1 Peter 5:1-2 (NIV)

Pastors are qualified according to the biblical requirements for elders found in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:6-9. [See also Acts 20:28; 1 Timothy 5:17-19; Titus 1:5-9.]
