Aldersgate is served by a team of lay leaders and pastors who work together diligently and faithfully to do the work of leading our church in the fulfillment of our mission to courageously live out God's unconditional love.

The Leadership Team meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm via Zoom. Visit the church calendar for information on each month's meeting. Email for more information, including to request the Zoom link for the monthly meetings.

Members of the Aldersgate Leadership Team are to be spiritually mature Christ-followers who are passionate about the mission and vision of Aldersgate, and who are spiritually gifted and called to be part of this team. The Leadership Team will consist of 15 lay members serving in three rotating classes. Leadership Team terms are for three (3) years in the areas of Finance, Trustees, and Staff Parish Relations (our Human Resources area). The Leadership Team also includes our Engage, Connect, Equip, and Send ministries, as well as representation from our Youth, United Methodist Women, and United Methodist Men. The Lead Pastor, Associate Pastor(s), and Church Executive Director are permanent ex-officio members of the Leadership Team.
