Southwinds is led by our Elder Team. The Southwinds family has affirmed this team to serve as spiritual overseers for the church. They prayerfully seek God’s leadership for direction and give leadership, encouragement, support and guidance to the work of God here.

All Southwinds pastors serve on this team as staff elders, along with the non-staff elders the Southwinds family has affirmed.
