Following the pattern of the New Testament church, the Woodland church is under the oversight of a plurality of qualified and godly shepherd (also known as elders, pastors, bishops, etc). See 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-11 for these qualifications. The preacher or minister serves a different role than pastors in the NT church. Our shepherds are Ron Cox, Lee Myers, Ken Nicholson, and Eli Weaver. If you would like to speak to one of them please use the contact form on the left, or visit the Woodland church during the posted worship and study times.
