Our Leadership Team at the Tulare church consists of Shepherds, Ministers, and Deacons. Each group plays a critical role in the leadership function of the church.


The Shepherds oversee the work of the church and its people while seeking to keep us headed in the right direction. Each of the elders have a group they call on which contain about 30 people each. 

Our Ministers handle the preaching & teaching of God's word. Here at Tulare, we are blessed to have three on our full time staff,  each serves a different group for the building up and edification of the body. 

The Deacons have a project focused ministry that centers around their passions of services.


“It is a trustworthy statement: if any man aspires to the office of overseer, it is a fine work he desires to do.” (1 Timothy 3:1)
