Who is in charge of the church? Jesus said, “I will build MY church” (Matthew 16:18, emphasis ours). The repeated refrain of the New Testament is that Christ is the head of the church, and we are His body. It is based on this fundamental truth that the leadership structure of Church of the Springs is built. Those charged to serve by leading do not fulfill their responsibilities by making decisions, but by following His direction. This can only come as a result of spending time pursuing His heart and seeking his direction for the church.

We believe that healthy churches are the product of godly leaders, who are dedicated and surrendered to the will of God. The qualiications of these men are found in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and in Titus 1:6-9.

Pastor Brent is our lead overseer, providing vision and direction for the church. He works with a team of 5 other godly men in leading, serving, and taking care of our church family. Collectively these men are our "elders" and they lovingly govern the affairs of the church.

In addition to our elder/pastor team, we have a team of dedicated ministry leaders and directors who assist the church in fulfulling our calling to Love God, Learn His Ways and Make Disciples.

Here are the individuals who fill those rolls:



Brent Batson
Lead Pastor & Elder



Butch Johnson




Jordan Batson
Worship Leader
