River Oaks Community Church is led by a Session, comprised of both Teaching and Ruling Elders. The Session provides spiritual oversight on all church matters. They ensure the ministry of evangelism remains the top priority of the church, that the church is organized for the advancement of the gospel, and that the staff, ministries, and team leaders are implementing River Oaks’ mission to reach, build, and send disciples of Jesus Christ.
Our Teaching Elders are Pastors David Beaty, Sonny Flowers, and Andrew Wild. Our Ruling Elders are elected by the members of the church to watch over the spiritual welfare of the congregation. They minister alongside our Teaching Elders in receiving members, encouraging people in their spiritual development, and caring for those they serve. As a representative of the people, the first duty of a Ruling Elder is to represent the mind of Christ.
