Jesus Christ is the head of His church and is the true leader of KCC. Jesus has called our local church together and there are various roles and responsibilities among us including that of leadership. Every member of Christ’s body has a vital role for the health of the whole (1 Corinthians 12:12). Learn more about King’s Cross Church’s beliefs here.

Our Pastors / Elders

The church has called Sam, Matt, Chad, Dean, Matt, and Jeremy to lead the church as pastors (aka elders).  The pastors are the spiritual shepherds of the church who are devoted to teaching, praying, and leading the direction of the church.

Their wives—Chelsea, Cassie, Beth, Jayne, Amelia, and Becca—seek to intentionally disciple the women of King’s Cross Church. They are involved in teaching, counseling, and praying for women and their families.
