Pastors, Staff, and Ministry Leaders


Serving through Leading
Strasburg Community Church is led by a group of men called elders. These men carry the responsibility of shepherding the church in such a way that cultivates a healthy atmosphere of personal growth and discipleship while overseeing the affairs of the church.
Every elder that serves does so based on God’s calling in their lives and by meeting the Biblical qualifications for the role, as found in passages such as 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:6-9.

Leading through Serving
Deacons serve as the backbone of our church. Overseeing many of the day-to-day activities and operations of the church, these men and women use their gifting and skills to ensure the church continues onward in its mission in responsible ways that reflect wise stewardship of God’s blessing.
Our deacons serve on committees, based on their strengths and experience, to oversee various areas of the church such as grounds and maintenance, finance, outreach, and HR.

Areas of deacon oversight

This list of roles for the deacon board help's to better identify the various areas that deacons are responsible for providing oversight and leadership of as well as help for future planning with regards to onboarding of new deacons. In some cases, one deacon will most likely be sufficient to carry out a particular role but in others it may be necessary to have more than one deacon assigned to a particular role, or even for a deacon to carry out more than one role at a time.


Ensuring that everyone who interacts with the church, both current attendees as well as visitors, have the best possible experience, the deacon(s) who oversee hospitality helps to ensure that people are well loved and cared for.
