New Song leaders serve under the headship of our Lord Jesus Christ, by the guidance and teaching of God's Word and the leading of the Holy Spirit. Our leaders are also accountable to the church body as a whole. We believe in a plurality of Elders in accordance with the teaching of Scripture in 1 Timothy 3 and the example of our Lord Jesus in appointing the twelve to share in the leadership of the church in the Gospels and the book of Acts. If you have any questions about our leadership team or about New Song in General, please feel free to contact us!
