Leadership Teams

The Blawenburg Reformed Church is a family of God’s people united in Christ through the Holy Spirit. We commit our gifts to worship, hospitality, life-long learning, serving those in need, and proclaiming the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ.


The Leadership Teams carry out the business of the church and implement the church budget and programs in their areas.  They make recommendations to the Consistory to implement new ideas or expenditures.
