Southwest Bible Church is an Elder led church. Elders are men called by God to shepherd the church and are qualified to be Elders based on the characteristics described in 1 Tim. 3 and Titus 1. The church staff enjoys the privilege of serving the church body and our community as we all seek to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus Christ among all peoples.
