The Elder Team is responsible for overall direction and governance at Jacob’s Well. They oversee the pastoral staff, approve and monitor budgets, deal with problems as they arise and seek to anticipate and avoid them whenever possible, and most important, are responsible for the vision and direction of our church and its mission and values. Members are selected for spiritual, personal, and relational maturity, along with special gifts or skills needed by the team.
The current elders are: Kevin Morris (chair), Ian Davidson, Kelly Jackson, Steve Jernigan, Sarah Magill, Ed Marquette, Jannele Mastin, Merritt Posten, John Power and Jeff Turner. Elders serve for three-year terms. Potential elders may be nominated by sharing their name with any current elder.
In addition, the Pastoral Leadership Team of Isaac Anderson, Mike Crawford, Jim Gum, Tim Keel, and Jessi Marcus participate in the meeting. Tim Keel is the only member of the Pastoral Elder Team who is a voting member of the elders.
