First Mennonite Church Of San Francisco




The Elders are the official governing body of our congregation and are responsible for discerning our community's overall mission, vision and strategy. The Elders are also the primary body by which our many committees communicate and coordinate their ministries. The Elders are made up of an Elders Chair, an at-large position, and representatives from each of the six Core Committees (Worship, Faith Formation, Pastoral Care, Community Life, Stewardship, Outreach). Pastoral staff also serve on Elders in an ex-officio capacity.

True to our Anabaptist heritage, we believe in collaborative, shared models of leadership. We therefore are committed to training members of our community in the arts of worship, social engagement, and leadership in the world and in the church. We especially value our strength in cultivating young adult leaders and teaching our children.
