There are various people who you will meet when you visit on a Sunday morning but our goal is that you encounter Jesus Christ. He is the Head of the Church and our great High Priest. (Eph. 1:22–23, 4:15, 5:23),
He has gifted the church with people who can lead the church of God. At Radiant Church we have Servants whose role it is to ensure Jesus remains our focus.
Board of Directors serve under Christ and work with our Lead Pastor, God intends for more than one man to lead the church as a safeguard for both the church and the man. The doctrine of plurality accommodates for leaders amongst leaders (1 Tim. 5:17), but this is for the purpose of functionality rather than superiority. It is more of a ‘first among equals’ rather than a hierarchy. At Radiant Church the Board of Directors is comprised of Calvary Chapel Pastors throughout North America, and their role is to watch over and support Earl Buchan as he serves as the Lead Pastor.
Pastors. Everyone in the church has a servant heart, our Pastors are recognised in the church for works of service. (i.e. serving and caring for God’s people in (1 Tim. 3:8–13).) They have oversight in Life Groups, Worship and other ministries.
ACCOUNTABILITY is very important to us. We believe that the local church is the body of Christ. As a team we actively seek accountability and counsel from our Board of Directors, and other churches.
