Our Leadership


We believe leaders raise up leaders.

The Resting Place believes in the power of the five-fold ministry according to Ephesians 4:11-15. We empower our leaders to utilize their unique, God-given gifts to raise up each one of our church members into their specific callings so that they can go out and be life-giving, peace-bearing Kingdom culture-shapers!
