The elder board consists of pastoral staff (senior and associates), as well as lay members who are affirmed by the congregation to be qualified for leadership according to the criteria of 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:6-9, and are recognized to possess the spiritual gifts necessary to effectively carry out the task of servant leadership.

The responsibilities of the elder board of Hope Community Church revolve around four primary areas:  Direction,  Discipline, Discipleship and Doctrine.
