Everyone at TBC is part of the team - we serve together and we lead together. As a Baptist church we have formal membership where we make commitments to one another and so our major decisions are taken together. We do so joyfully and wholeheartedly and have enjoyed real unity in prayerful discernment around building projects and staff appointments.
