BOARD OF ELDERS

Walnut Hill is a nondenominational, evangelical church. We have a Board of Elders, elected by our members, who are responsible for providing spiritual leadership and oversight. In any given week, our Elders can be found praying with individuals, serving alongside the congregation or supporting our pastoral team as they lead and direct daily ministry. You can contact our Elders at leadership@walnuthillcc.org.
