Elders & Deacons

On Sunday, September 11, 2016, the Pastors and Leadership Council presented a plan for biblically-driven changes in our church government to the members of WCB. On September 18, we held a congregational meeting and voted to move forward in a plural-elder led congregationalism form of government. A copy of the polity proposal is available at the church office. A membership meeting was held in January with a vote and the nominees were elected to eldership.

WCB Elders:  Dave Thayer, Doug Sims, Brett Pierce, and Joel Molascon
