They are ordained and appointed to serve, instruct, be an example, maintain order, share godly counsel, guard the flock, guide the flock and defend the gospel. Members of the Presbytery also oversee various ministry areas at the church. Acts 20:28 says, “Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. The Presbytery of The Secret Place lead with love, live by example and walk by faith.
At The Secret Place, we are more than just members, we are shareholders in the body of Christ. Our vision is to serve in the spirit of love with Jesus Christ's character and compassion.

As shareholders, we support the mission and vision of The Secret Place and we joyfully serve the Lord with gladness in our hearts.
