HOW WE LEAD
Rock Creek Church is an Elder led church. Elders are nominated and elected by the congregation to oversee the ministries and operations of the church. The pastoral staff submits to the Elder Board and are responsible for the day-to-day life of the church. The Lead Team is comprised of volunteers who are responsible for specific ministries.
