Elder Contact Groups

At Brooks Avenue, we are blessed to be served by an eldership of men, supported by their wives and families who diligently work to shepherd the congregation.

Each family of the Brooks Avenue congregation has a default elder contact. If you are already being shepherded by another elder, this does not replace this relationship. This grouping is also used for visitor and potential new member follow-up.
