Since 2012, JLP’s pastor has been Luke Jones. He came to us from a small church in the California desert not far from Joshua Tree National Park. Prior to that, he worked in the technology industry as a software developer.
Our bylaws establish a board of elected Elders, called Council, that sets the direction of the Church. Another elected body oversees relations between the staff and members of the congregation (and has the imaginative name of Staff-Parish Relations Committee). Various other teams serve to put together our Sunday Worship gatherings, to help develop the next generation of church members, to nurture strong friendships among church members, and to serve people in the wider community of Sand Lake.
