Elders, Deacons, and Deaconesses


Elders are biblically qualified men (1 Timothy 3:2-7; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:2-3) who are given the responsibility by the Lord to lead His local church. The main priorities for the elders are studying and teaching the Word of God and praying for the people God has entrusted to their care (Acts 6:1-7; Ephesians 4:11-12; Colossians 1:9-12). This is referred to as “shepherding” throughout the New Testament. At EBC, each elder shepherds a group of members (10-20 families). The EBC elders are:

  • Luke Boswell
  • Kevin Brown
  • Tim Drumm
  • Nathan Fogde
  • Herb Geeslin
  • Jerry Lanting
  • Josh Peterson
  • Dave Riley
  • Jeff Rindal
  • Patrick Slyman
  • Dennis Weems

Deacons are biblically qualified men (1 Timothy 3:8-13) that assist the elders in caring for the needs of the church (Acts 6). These responsibilities include baptism, membership, communion, visitation, benevolence, and the Deacon Scholarship. The EBC deacons are:

  • Chuck Durham
  • Mark Dye
  • Will Flint
  • Jared Hamman
  • Oscar Karok
  • Vic Monlux
  • Tom Murillo
  • Luis Pimentel

Deaconesses are godly women that assist the elders in caring for the needs of the church. These responsibilities include baptism, memorials, communion, visitation, and Christmas baskets. The EBC Deaconesses are:

  • Patty Barnts
