Leadership in the church is a gift from God. Under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, the members of the church are the final authority in matters of membership, doctrine, and leadership.

God has called men as elders to shepherd and oversee the church with the Word and prayer. The elders of Mount Vernon are responsible for overseeing the church’s teaching, pastoral care, evangelism, and discipleship. The deacons and ministry coordinators serve to meet physical needs and coordinate different ministries. The staff enable the church’s daily ministry in various ways and help equip members to fulfill their ministry in the church.
