AV Reach has a unique multi-layered leadership team that work in harmony to ensure the overall spiritual health of our church. Using the Bible as our compass, we strive to create a church environment where people not only live, but thrive. We strive to create a God-centered fellowship that encourages people to love God and others.
The purpose of the Spiritual Leadership Counsel is to ensure the spiritual welfare of the church. We do this by shepherding (guiding & counseling) people, working with ministry staff to set the goals for the church, and providing support. Each couple is appointed to lead in specific spiritual areas of the church. The counsel meets regularly to discuss, plan, and meet the needs within the church.
