How the Church Runs

Golden Bay Baptist Church is pastored by Nicholas van Oudtshoorn, together with a team of elders and deacons. The deacons are tasked by the church congregation to manage the church, and to make decisions on behalf of the church body. The elders are tasked with the spiritual oversight of those in the church.
