Our Leadership

First Baptist Edmonton uses a congregational form of governance, in which members are the main visionaries and decision-makers.  A Council is elected from the membership to provide leadership, coordinate ministry efforts, and work towards the sustainability of the church.


Council meets once a month, and provides ongoing information bulletins to the congregation on activities and issues.  Congregational meetings are scheduled regularly throughout the year.

Please contact us for council email addresses.
