The Branches Leadership Team

All members of Branches participate in one way or another. But our key leaders are presented below. Each brings a world of experience into the leadership team. Our focus together is to love as Christ loves and to be as welcoming to everyone as Jesus would be while holding to the basic principles of the Christian faith. We believe in promoting the depth of Christian experience rather than other things, believing that God will take care of the growth.
