Team of Elders


What is an Elder?

"Elders must be recognized by the church as strong spiritual leaders and must have good reputations both in the church and community. In the absence of a pastor, elders are the spiritual leaders of the church and by precept and example must seek to lead the church into a deeper and fuller Christian experience."

(Church Manual p. 71) (See also 1 Timothy 3:1-7)

If you need to get in touch with the elders, please email elders@houstonsda.org with your request.
