Elders at North Metro Church

Elders: Dr. Larry Van Vleet, Si Wood, James Wagstaff, Larry Kelley, Jeff McAlister, Jason Barrios. Not pictured: Jim Copeland, Lance Pulliam, Danny Bote.

The overseers and shepherding leaders of NMC are the Elders (Acts 20:28, Ephesians 4:11-12, James 5:14, 1 Peter 5:2). The Elders work as a team and are individually accountable to the purpose and vision of the church, one another, and the church body. You will see our Elders at North Metro teaching many of our Discovery (‘introduction to NMC’)  and elective Bible study classes, advising the ministry staff, and prayerfully supporting all aspects of our church life. To contact an elder at North Metro, send an email to [email protected]. I Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9.


Deacons at North Metro Church

Deacons: Randy Wiles, Jeff Peterson, David Springer, Dennis Wolf. Not pictured: John Davis, Walt Slade.

Deacons are the servants of the church (Acts 6 and 1 Timothy 3:8-13). You will see them helping the church body by managing the facilities and finances. They also operate “behind the scenes” to manage benevolent requests, as well as handle the administration of the Lord’s Supper. To contact a deacon, send an email to [email protected].
