Our Leadership Team


The core leadership team at Warehouse 242 includes a diverse group of staff and elders working together to cultivate missional followers of Jesus. As leaders, we value pursuing people, growing toward Christlikeness, unleashing our imagination, asking good questions, staying accountable, and serving out of who we are.

While the staff work to advance our mission as full-time and part-time employees of the church, the elders are volunteer leaders elected by our community to provide oversight, wise counsel, and pastoral guidance for our community. Each elder serves on a rotation with the governing body of our church called the Session, which includes our Lead Pastor and Associate Pastor. The primary role of the Session is to represent the mind of Christ and discern God’s direction for Warehouse 242. The Session of Warehouse is accountable to our Presbytery, a regional group of pastors and elders within our denomination (the Evangelical Presbyterian Church).

In addition to our core leadership team of staff and elders, we have a large number of amazing volunteers leading according to their gifts, whether in finance, music and art, media, adult small groups, expectant parent care, kids, students, 20s and 30s, men and women, affinity groups, Sunday hospitality, West Charlotte service, or global partnerships.


Our Team of Elders

Elders are leaders of the church whose primary task is to discern the mind of Christ for a particular Christian community. The pattern of elders leading local churches emerged in the early church (Acts 6:1–7), and several New Testament letters explain what this important role entails (1 Timothy 3:1–7; 1 Peter 5:1–4; Titus 1:6–9). One way to summarize the role of elder as presented in the New Testament is to use the acronym G-O-E-S*. First, elders are guardians who uphold the truth, goodness, and beauty of the Gospel and protect the church from theological error, moral failure, and spiritual danger. Second, elders are overseers who lead the church through wise planning and decision making. Third, elders are called to be examples of Christ through their way of life. And fourth, elders are shepherds who care for members of the community and reach out to those who are disconnected.

If you have any questions for our elders, you can contact the Clerk of Session  by emailing elders@warehouse242.org
